A loan of $375 helped a member to build a decent above-ground latrine for her household.

Sophorn's Group's story

Sophorn is a 41-year-old mother of five children. She and her entire family are living in a rural area of Sa Ang district, Kandal Province. She and her husband make a living via rice cropping, which they have been doing for several years.

Including this cycle, Sophorn is a fourth-cycle micro-loan borrower through Kiva's partner, VisionFund. In a smart manner, she has paid back entirely all of her previous loans and it has enabled her to keep up good progress for her business and to maintain her family income. Now Sophorn has formed a group of three to seek a new loan. The three of them are each seeking the same loan amount, KHR 500,000.

As the group leader, Sophorn plans to use her portion to buy materials to build a decent above-the-ground latrine for her household. She hopes that this latrine will help promote good hygienic practices and protection for her family.

In this group: Sophorn, Sreysros, Lina
