A loan of $100 helped a member to buy the above-the-ground materials for constructing a proper latrine.


Chhoeum's Group's story

A 41-year-old local farmer originally from the Bovel district of Battambang Province, Chhoeum is married and a mother of five children. Only four children are dependent on her as one of them is a student, and the remaining three are helping the family's business. She has been involved in this business for 5 years and is able to earn about 22,000 KHR per day. However, her entire household does not have a proper latrine for usage. Therefore, she is forming a group of two to apply for a new loan. Choeum's group consists of two female members as sixth-cycle loan borrowers, and she is the leader. With success, she has paid back loans and that has helped her to sustain her business and cover her daily costs of living. Now, she and her co-member are seeking the same loan amount of 200,000 KHR each. Chhoeum is going to use her portion to buy the above-the-ground materials for latrine construction, such as zinc, cement, bricks, a latrine slab, etc. She hopes that all of her children will have good health.
