A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials needed to build a latrine and pay for labor costs.


Phorn's story

Phorn is 37 years old and lives in a rural village of Pursat province. She is in the farming business, primarily growing rice on around two-hectares of farmland. She has a common-law relationship with her spouse and has three children, who are attending school. She has been doing farming since a young age when she helped her parents.

Phorn aims to see her family living a healthy lifestyle and tries her best to increase their personal hygiene in living. That’s why she has requested a KHR 4,000,000 loan that will enable her to buy materials needed to build a latrine and pay for labor costs. Having a latrine to use in the household, she can promote the family's health and keep her family from spreading pollutants into the surrounding environment. Thanks to lenders for making loans in a program like Kiva via its partners, HKL is able to help low-income people gain access to sanitation and personal hygiene. For this water loan product, HKL has provided Phorn a special interest rate and more suitable loan terms than its general products.
