A loan of $750 helped to build a latrine.


Chin's story

Chin is 61 years old and a single mother of two dependent children and three married children. She lives in a small village of Kompong Thom Province, Cambodia. In the last forty years, she has managed a rice farming business which is the sole source of her income. She grows rice and sells the crop to local dealers. The farmland was located near her house.

Chin 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.
