A loan helped to build a well and proper latrine for her household.

Soeurn's story

Soeurn is from Rumlech Village in the Bakan District of Pursat Province in Cambodia. She is 47 years old and married with five children, four of whom are still in school. Her eldest is married and works as a farmer. For more than 30 years, Soeurn has been farming rice as the primary source of her income. Her husband and children give her great support in daily farming activities. The income from farming assures her enough food and payment for home bills and other commodities. Soeurn needs financial support to improve water and sanitation for her household. She realizes that both play an important role in healthy living conditions. The loan will be used to dig a well of concrete rings to ensure enough water for daily consumption. The remaining funds will be for the construction of a latrine. Thanks to the water loan program with a special rate offered by Hattha Kaksekar Limited, Soeurn is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and to protect the environment.
