A loan of $800 helped to buy materials needed to build a latrine and hire people to perform the construction.


Sothea's story

Sothea is 36 years old and a resident from Kampong Cham province. She has been married for years but unfortunately she doesn't have any children. Sothea devotes herself to a farming business, primarily growing rice on a few pieces of land alongside her lovely husband. She has been doing this business for nearly 15 years, and earns a decent income to pay for the living costs.

At the moment, Sothea has requested a loan of 800 US dollars which will enable her to buy materials needed to build a latrine and hire people to perform the construction. Sothea realizes that by having a latrine at home she will be able to keep her family healthy and promote their health. She thanks lenders for their loan support via programs like Kiva to help low-income families gain access to sanitation and increase their personal hygiene.
