Tha, 36, who is a mother of three children, lives in Bakan District, Pursat Province, Cambodia. In the last ten years, she has been in the farming business, growing rice and selling the products to local dealers and the customers in the market. This farming business allows her to make around USD 6 a day.

Tha wants to promote her convenient life by having a latrine for her family to use. Now, she is borrowing a loan from Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL) to build a hygienic latrine for the sake for her family members. Tha would like to thank lenders for the financial support, via HKL, which provides her with a much lower interest rate than its general loan product.

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.

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 HKL

Hattha Kaksekar Limited is one of the largest and most successful microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia. The organization provides microfinance services to the poor, particularly women, in urban and rural areas. Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand the outreach of HKL’s financial services to a greater number of clients in rural areas of Cambodia.

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.
