A loan of $400 helped a member to buy materials for constructing a decent latrine.

Mean's Group's story

Living in a thatched roof house in a rural village of the Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Mean is aged 55 years old and married. She and her husband have five children, only one of whom is still in school. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice and planting sapodilla trees and they have been in this business for almost thirty-five years. With her current business, she is able to earn approximately 12,000 KHR per day to support her family.

This is the first loan for Mean with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan of 500,000 KHR each. Mean, the leader, will use her portion to buy materials for constructing a decent latrine. She'll need cement, bricks, a latrine pan, etc. She hopes this loan will enable her family to have a clean latrine for daily use, so as to provide a healthy standard of living.
