Kong R. (pictured with his wife) is 26 years old and owns a trailer-motorbike. He uses it to run a taxi. He normally picks up passers-by, tourists, and merchandise for a profit.
His wife has had a job as a poultry seller. They have been married for years but have no children.
Kong R.'s existing taxi is a small width so he can transport a few people only. He hopes to replace this taxi by using a Kiva loan to purchase a new one. This will help him to increase his income and better meet his family's daily expenses.
Hattha Kaksekar Limited is one of the largest and most successful microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia. The organization provides microfinance services to the poor, particularly women, in urban and rural areas. Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand the outreach of HKL’s financial services to a greater number of clients in rural areas of Cambodia.
