In Kompong Cham province, San H. and her husband are local farmers. They earn a profit by planting a rice crop on their own farmland, which was inherited many years ago from their grandparents. Besides the farming business, San H. also has a small business selling products such as fast foods, soft drinks, cooking ingredients, sweets, and other items for additional income.
San H. is blessed with six children, three of whom are single and three of whom are married and live in other houses. Two of her children are employed in a variety of jobs. San H. is requesting a loan of $600 from Kiva through HKL to be used to purchase a used motorcycle for her children to ride to their workplaces. It can reduce the cost of traveling expenses, and they can use it for going anywhere as well.
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.
