Mrs. Nget, 33, is a farmer who resides in Kompot province, a good agricultural zone. She has a life partner in her husband, Mr. Hy, who works as a fisherman. Her husband regularly catches fish, crabs and other sea animals from the sea nearby and then brings them to sell in a market. Together, they normally earn an average of $4USD each day to cover all the expenses. They are blessed with three young children who are attending a local public school.
Mrs. Nget is seeking a loan from HKL, one of Kiva’s partners, to buy a motorcycle for the use of the family. This loan will help facilitate her family's comfortable living and reduce some expenses on transportation fees.
In the future, Mrs. Nget hopes she’ll be able to expand her family’s business and to support all her children to the university level in Phnom Penh.
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.
