Thim is a 33-year-old married woman who resides in the region of Bakan district, Pursat province. She has worked in the fields with her parents since she was a very young age. Thim now has more than 1.5 hectare of farmland where she produces rice in the rainy season. Thim wants to own additional land for farming, so she needs to save enough money to buy in the next few years. This will enable her to increase her production rate and improve their income.

Thanks to Hattha Kaksekar's new water loan program with a special rate, Thim is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions, safeguarding her family's health and protecting the environment. She will use the loan she's applying for to build a hygienic latrine and septic tank to improve her household sanitation practices for the sake of her family.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of HKL's new water and sanitation loan program designed to help improve living standards of poor and low-income people living in Cambodia.

HKL has designed this social loan product to feature a lower rate than typical.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
