Chhun is a 30 year-old man living in Prey Chor district, Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. He is married to Naisan, who is in the same age. This humble couple has three children who are attending school.

Chhun and his wife have a small fishing business. After fishing, Chhun and his wife bring their fishes to sell at the local market, which is far away from their community. From this business, they can earn about 3 USD each day.

To upgrade their living standard, this couple wants to repair their broken house, but they are lacking money, so they wish to apply for a loan from HKL and Kiva. This is their first loan so they hope that lenders will sponsor them. This lovely couple is very thankful to all sponsors who are kind.

About 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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
