A loan helped to build a safe latrine at home.


Sokny's story

Sokny (40) is a married woman and a lovely mother of three children. She and her husband help each other to enhance family's income by cultivating rice crops and other agricultural products seasonally. Every day, Sokny and her husband plant and supply enough seeds and fertilizers to rice crops and other agriculture crops by spending more than 8 hours at the farm lands. The farming business is the main source of her family's income. With her hard effort, she can earn approximately USD 8 per day which will have to cover for daily meals, clothes, medicine and other needs.

As of now, she is requesting a loan of USD 2,000 to build a safe latrine at home. In this way she hopes to increase the value of her home, and improve sanitation. The water loan program offered by HKL with a special interest rate has helped to encourage her to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment.


This loan is special because:

It provides access to clean, renewable energy sources, like solar and biogas.
