Mr. S., 29, is a married man who is blessed with school-aged children. He currently lives with his family in a wooden house in Phnom Penh city, where he has also built a medium-sized workshop from which he provides an invitation publishing service. His wife tries to earn money to meet the family’s financial crisis by sewing clothes from home. S. hopes to purchase more necessary equipment in order to provide a good service, and has therefore requested a loan from Kiva partner, HKL.
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.
