Yon is an old father of three children living in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Presently, he is a farmer. He is married to Keo who has been generating her income by selling soft drinks and groceries. From this business, his wife gains about $2 each day. His wife wants to expand her business but she lacks capital, so she has decided with him to request some funds through HKL's partner Kiva to purchase more soft drinks and groceries. His wife believes that this loan will make her business grow, gain more profit and meet prosperity.
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.
