Sarom has been an honest client with Hattha Kaksekar for two loans already, and she has never been late on any of her loans. As this is her third loan cycle, she will use the loan funds to build a hygienic latrine, for the sake of her family members. She has not had a proper one before. Thanks to the water loan program, with a special interest rate offered by HKL, Sarom is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions, to safeguard the health of her family and to protect the environment.

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.
