A loan of $150 helped a member to buy materials for construction of a sanitary latrine.


Sovanara's Group's story

Sovanara resides in a rural area of the Kandal Province’s Kandal Stoeng district, Cambodia. He is 42 years old and married with five children, three of whom are dependent on him and still in school. To support his family, he has been involved in working as a paid taxi driver for 12 years whiles his wife plants sugarcane to help the family generate the income. The current business earns his family around 17,000 KHR per day and allows him to save about 6,000 KHR every day for future needs. Low crop yields resulting from flooding is the main challenge for his business. Sovanara’s group consists of three members who are all males and it is his first microloan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. He is leading his group asking for a loan of 200,000 KHR each. He will use his portion to buy materials for construction of a sanitary latrine (such as a toilet), tile drainage, and sewage. He hopes this loan will enable his family to have a sanitary latrine to improve their standard of living.
