Saiheang’s story

Saiheang is a 30-year-old widowed mother of two children. She resides in an area of Kampong Sambuor Leu Village, Preaek Thmei Commune, Kaoh Thum District, Kandal Province, Cambodia.

She is a factory worker. She has been involved in this career for nearly four years now, and she can make USD 5 per day to support her family.

Because it is hard to find a place to go to the toilet, she would like to get a loan from Kiva via HKL in order to build a hygienic latrine for her house. She is very happy with this loan since it will promote her health, environment, and living standards.

This is the first loan cycle for her with Kiva. She would like to thank all the lenders for their generosity in providing such a great loan for poor people like her. 

This loan is special because:

It helps prevent the spread of disease by providing clean drinking water and sanitation.

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. Loans under the program are directed at various products that help improve access to clean water and improved sanitation facilities including loans for water tanks, filters, wells, distribution, and latrines. These loans help to reduce rates of waterborne disease, improve health, and increase economic outcomes for poor families. HKL has designed this social loan product to feature a lower rate than typical.
