A loan of $1,500 helped to build a household latrine and buy its accessories.

Saroeun's story

Saroeun is 47 years of age and widowed. She has three children living with her in Prey Kabbas district, Takeo province.

To be able to fulfill her family’s needs, Saroeun is involved in the cultivation of rice on her own farmland of one hectare. She sells the agricultural products in the local market. Saroeun’s daughter helps her earn the income by weaving women’s skirts made of fine silk with gold and silver decorations.

Currently, Saroeun’s family doesn't have a safe latrine for use at home, so she wants to build one to improve their sanitation and personal hygiene. In this particular way, she has requested a loan of USD 1,500 to build a household latrine and buy its accessories.

The water loan program offered by HKL and Kiva with a special interest rate has encouraged her to focus on healthy living conditions, safeguarding the health of her family and protecting the environment.
