Thouch's story

Thouch, 45 years old, lives in a suburb of Phnom Penh. She is married to Ban, 47, and this couple has three children. To make a living, the couple has been involved in fishery since 2010 and earns, on average, an income of USD 8 a day. She wants to improve the general living conditions of the entire family by having a latrine to use, because there is no latrine in her house now. Therefore, she is borrowing a loan from Kiva to build a latrine. By doing this, she can help her family members gain access to sanitation, promote their health, and help to lessen environmental deterioration. She is thankful for the loan granted through HKL with a much lower interest rate than other general loan products.
