Mrs. Sum, 28, is a resident of the Baray District of Kompong Thom Province, Cambodia. She has four children who live under her revenue. All of them are enrolled in a local school. She now runs a business as a piglet raiser. From this business, she earns about $2 per day. Her husband works as a firewood seller, for which he earns approximately $4 per day. To improve their business, Mrs. Sum and her husband wish to purchase a new motorcycle. So, she would like to borrow some funds from Kiva Partner, HKL, in order to purchase it.
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.
