Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Savoeun's story

Savoeun, 45, is married with two children who are going to school. She currently lives with her family in a remote area of Santuk district in Kampong Thom province. She is an industrious farmer who has been working in the agricultural sector for nearly 20 years. She primarily grows rice crops to sell after harvest season. With her earnings from farming, Savoeun is able to provide food for her family and allowances for her school-age children.

Currently, Savoeun’s family has an unhygienic latrine for use, so it can’t provide her family healthful living conditions. That’s why she is asking for a loan to build a safe, hygienic latrine to promote their health. Thanks to the water loan program offered by HKL with a special rate. It has encouraged Savoeun to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment.
