Ret's story

Ret, aged 52, is a farmer in Rokhak Kiri district of Battambang province. She started farming in 1985 with the purpose of earning the income she needs to raise her family. She realized that she needed to be involved in another business in order to make enough money to provide the basic necessities for her family and to educate her children to the required educational standards. That’s why she decided to start a business of selling mixed grocery products in a local market.

Currently, Ret’s family doesn't have a safe latrine to use at home, so she would like to build one to improve their sanitation and personal hygiene. In this regard, she is asking for a loan of US$1,000 to build a household latrine and buy its accessories. Thanks to the water loan program offered by HKL with a special interest rate, it has encouraged her to focus on healthy living conditions in order to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment.
