A loan of $1,000 helped to build a household latrine and buy its accessories.

Sangam's story

Sangam is 53 years old and married with six children, three of whom are married and the rest are enrolled in school. Sangam is a farmer who learned to work in agriculture from her parents when she was very young. Her husband is in the same business, farming rice alongside her on more than one hectare of farmland in Pursat province. Having been in the business for years, Sangam is able to earn a normal income of $5.00 per day, which goes for meals, home bills and school allowances for her children.

Currently, Sangam’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 regard, she would like to acquire a loan in the sum of 1,000 US dollars to build a household latrine and buy its accessories. Thanks to the water loan program offered by HKL and Kiva with a special interest rate, she is encouraged to focus on healthy living conditions, safeguarding the health of her family and protecting the environment.
