Mrs. Gnek, a 47-year-old married woman, is a diligent farmer who has been living in Ornlong Veng district, Siem Reap province. She is a loving mother of two single children, one of whom is a driver, while the other one is attending school.
Gnek grows rice crops in both the rainy season and the dry season in order to produce a high production rate, earning an income in the neighborhood of $4.00 each day. She has been in this business with experience since 2006.
At the present time, she would like to request some funds from HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner, to pay for local laborers to harvest her rice crops. She hopes to expand her farmland and upgrade her standard of living in the near future.
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.
