Odhiambo's story

Odhiambo is 40 years old with four school-going children. He operates a general store that supplies his family's needs. Recently, there has been an outbreak of cholera in his region which was attributed to heavy rains and poor hygiene. He desires to construct a VIP (Ventilated Improved Pit) latrine that will provide security from hygiene-related diseases but his income from the shop is not enough to finance this project.

With a Kiva loan, Odhiambo will construct a VIP latrine that will serve his family adequately for years, ensuring protection from hygiene-related diseases. This will give him peace of mind as he will not have to spend more money on hospital bills and have his children out of school all the time due to diarrhea diseases. He has previously serviced four other business loans very well. His dream is to give his family a better life.
