More information about this loan
This loan is designed to help Cambodian households build standard latrines for improved sanitation. In Cambodia, the lack of proper and basic sanitation facilities contributes to health issues, including dehydration and malnutrition caused by diarrhea. These illnesses also create an additional economic burden for low-income and vulnerable families.
Kredit engaged in several strategic alliances with water and sanitation organizations to design and provide a customized and affordable loan product to borrowers. By funding this loan, you are playing an important role in improving access to clean water and sanitation.
Sanitation loans will be included in larger Kiva business loans intended to fund both borrower's business and sanitation needs.

This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
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.
