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

A loan helped to build a household latrine.

Suy's story

Suy is 34 years of age. She's a married woman and has three children. All of her children are attending school. For nearly 10 years, Suy and her husband have been working as construction workers and can earn approximately only $15 per day. She and her husband work at the construction site that is far away from her home and in the rural area. As the family's needs are increasing every day, she and her husband work very hard to ensure that they will have an excellent construction and can generate a higher income.

Since Suy doesn't have a safe latrine for use at home, she is unable to help her family members improve their sanitation and personal hygiene. For this particular reason, she has requested a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to build a household latrine.

In the future, she wants to renovate her old house and push her children to continue studying at university.

The water loan program, offered by HKL with a special interest rate, has helped to encourage Suy to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment.
