A loan of $250 helped a member to buy materials to construct a proper latrine for her family.

Leab's Group's story

Leab, 37 years old, is a widowed mother of three children, all of whom are dependent on her and still in school. To make a living, she has been in rice farming for thirteen years. She is able to earn about 18,000KHR per day and manages to save about 8,000KHR each day after paying for daily expenses. A lack of working capital to support her business is the main challenge for her rice paddy business. Leab’s group consists of six members who live in the same village of the Kandal province’s Kandal Stoeng district of Cambodia and she is a first-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Leab and her group members are applying for a loan of 160,000KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy materials for constructing a proper latrine, including toilet bowls, tile drainage etc. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a clean latrine for her family to use.
