Mrs. Run, 41, is a responsible housewife who always takes care of the family, especially her small kids. She is in the business of selling mixed products like groceries, packaged foods and sweets from a small store inside her own her house. Typically, she makes a profit of around $2.00 per day. She also takes some time to educate her children to be good people in society.
This family doesn’t have a motorcycle yet, so every day wherever they go, they have to spend money for motor-taxi services. Mrs. Run said that it’ll be better if she has a motorcycle for her family to use. Therefore, she is applying for a loan from HKL and Kiva to buy a second-hand motorcycle. She hopes that she’ll have comfortable living through using this loan. She is very happy and thankful to all Kiva’s lenders.
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.
