Mrs. Long, 55 years old, is a responsible mother of 6 children. She is in the agricultural business. She has a life partner in her husband who provides motorcycle services to the people around Baray district.
Besides farming work, Mrs. Long has another skill in weaving clothes. But she hasn’t used this skill for a long time because she doesn’t have a loom at home to operate. Now she has decided to look for some funds from HKL and Kiva to purchase a loom and other raw materials for the process. She hopes that she will be able to generate more income through this new project.
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.
