Chhoem is a rice cultivator from Kampong Chhnang province. She has been living there with her parents since she was young. She is now 48 years old and a good mother of 6 single children. The profit she earns from farming business is just for daily food, but it doesn’t provide a better living condition for this family.
Chhoem is a hardworking mother and is always busy with her farming work alongside her husband to support her family. Chhoem would like to take out some funds from HKL and Kiva to pay for her children’s school fees and enrollments in the new academic year. She is very happy that she can send and support all her children to attend school.
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.
