Chheim's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for building a latrine.

Chheim's story

Chheim, 44 years old, is a single man who lives in the Prey Svay Village, Chong Ampil Commune, Kanhchriech District, Prey Veng Province. He is a farmer and makes a net income of about USD 5 per day.

As shown in the photo, some part of a latrine was completed and needs to be finished soon, but due to the shortage of funds, he cannot finish it as he wishes.

Chheim is requesting a loan from Kiva now to pay for building the latrine. He hopes that this loan will bring him a better, healthier life.

This is the first loan cycle for him with Kiva. He is plans to buy more farmland to increase his harvest. He would like to say thanks to all lenders for their financial support.
