Sambo
Sambo is a widowed mother and has two children. She is 48 years old and lives in the small home with her youngest child in a village of Kanhchriech district, Prey Veng, while her older son works abroad as a paid laborer. Sambo has been a farmer for more than 25 years, primarily growing rice to sell. She receives support from her child to accomplish these activities each year.

Sambo has never been with local state banks for any loans before. She would like to acquire a loan which will be used to build a hygienic latrine for the sake of her family members as she has not had a proper one before. Thanks to the water loan program with a special rate offered by HKL, Sambo is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions, to safeguard the health of her family and to protect the environment.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of HKL's new water and sanitation loan program designed to help improve living standards of poor and low-income people living in Cambodia. Loans under the program are directed at various products that help improve access to clean water and improved sanitation facilities including loans for water tanks, filters, wells, distribution, and latrines. These loans help to reduce rates of waterborne disease, improve health, and increase economic outcomes for poor families. HKL has designed this social loan product to feature a lower rate than typical.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
