A loan of $500 helped to build a bathroom, to fulfill her family’s hygiene need.

Ven's story

Ven is a 51-year-old woman, living in the Bakan district of Pursat province. She is in a common-law relationship to her husband, and they are in business together, farming rice for their daily sustenance. She learned farm work from her parents, from the time she was a little girl. Thanks to them and her experience, she is able to earn income to support her nuclear family, which is comprised of 10 members.

At the moment, her home has no bathroom. So she is requesting a loan to build a bathroom, to fulfill her family’s hygiene need. This loan will improve her general living conditions, promote the family's health, and help to lessen environmental deterioration. She is grateful for the loan that has been granted by HKL, which has a much lower interest rate than is usual for this kind of loan product.
