Leng S., 42 years old, owns a small shop located along the street where she sells soft drinks and food. She typically makes around $ 3.20 in profit each day to support her family.
Her husband is a motor taxi driver. They have four children, two are single and the others are married. Three are employed.
Leng is running her business smoothly because she has skills in public relations which she uses with her customers. She wishes to have more funds to increase her capital to purchase more necessary items to sell. This is why she decided to look for lenders on Kiva.
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.
