A loan of $1,600 helped to build a latrine.


Sokmuoy's story

Sokmuoy is 40 years old and a married woman with two children. She lives in Prey Chhor District of Kampong Cham Province. In the last 20 years, she and her husband have been involved in a rice farming business, growing rice and selling it to the local dealers. It is the sole source of their income. Her family’s daily income is USD $5.

Sokmuoy wants to improve the general living conditions of the entire family by having a latrine to use, because there is no latrine in her house now. Therefore, she is borrowing a loan from Kiva to build a latrine and buy its facilities. By doing this, she can help her family members gain access to sanitation, promote their health, and help to lessen environmental deterioration. She is thankful for the loan granted through HKL, with a much lower interest rate than other general loan products.
