Mrs. Sor is 33 years old and a mother of three children, living in Ornlong Veng district, Siem Reap province of Cambodia. She is a farmer who grows rice and vegetable crops. Most of her income is from selling vegetables, which she harvests from her fields as well as buys from her suppliers. She is able to earn approximately $3.00 per day to solve the financial needs and support her children to school.
Mrs. Sor is requesting this loan from HKL and Kvia to buy a used motorcycle to support her business, and with remaining funds, she will buy a stock of vegetables for consistent sale.
This loan will provide her a good opportunity to sustain her business. In the future, she intends to own store for selling merchandise products as well as vegetables in a local market of the province.
