Veasna's story

Veasna, age 34, married and has one lovely child. She lives with her family in the area of Kien Svay District, Kandal Province.

She is an experienced cooker. She has to gets up early in the morning to prepare rice, meats and beans for cooking Ansam cake and sells to the local market.

To increase family economy, her husband is having the occupation as driver in small construction company. She and her husband can earn a net income of only USD 8 per day.

Since she doesn't have a safe latrine for use at home, she is unable to help her family members improve their sanitation and personal hygiene. Therefore she has requested a loan of USD 2,000 to build a household latrine and buy its necessaries.

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