A loan of $1,000 helped to build a decent latrine for his family, and to buy more sweets to sell at his business.

Vuthy's story

Vuthy is a villager from Kandal Stoeng district, in Kandal province. He is a 33-year-old, married father of two schoolchildren. He makes a living by selling sweets in a school, and his wife is working at a factory to supplement their family's income. She has six years' experience in her work.

Vuthy is a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). With this loan, he is seeking 4,000,000 KHR. He will use part of this amount to buy more sweets for resale, and another part to build a decent latrine for his family. He hopes that he can make more income from his business and own a proper latrine, to promote good hygiene for his family.
