Yen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to build a latrine to improve the health of her family.

Yen's story

Ms. Yen is 36 years old. She is a married woman with two children. She lives with them and her husband in a house that doesn’t have a hygienic latrine to use. She is thinking about getting a new latrine and she needs capital to do this. Thus, she asked for a loan from Kiva to buy necessary material such as cement, sand, bricks, toilet-bowl, etc. to build the latrine.

Yen hopes that when she has the latrine, she will have a better life and save on medical expenses. With income from livestock, she can put a side a part of her income to pay back the loan.
