She spends about six months of the year working on her rice field and with the rest of time she turns to raise and look after her cow for calves. She is an industrious woman and a good housewife as well. From her farming business, she is able to earn around $3USD per day to solve the financial necessities in the family.

Currently the public electricity network has a direct link in the vicinity of her commune. Chhon is seeking funds from HKL and Kiva in order to buy electric wire and to pay for electric connection fees. This loan will provide Chhon’s family a comfortable living. She would like to say thanks to all who help fund her loan.

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.
