Nop, 33, is a loving mother of three unmarried children. She is from the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province, where she works as a farmer. She is usually busy farming every day because she grows her rice crops twice a year, relying on water from a nearby river during the dry season. Since she divorced her husband, she has worked even harder to provide her children's basic necessities, especially education.
Nop is requesting a loan from HKL and Kiva to buy a motorcycle for the family’s use, which would provide them with a more comfortable life. In the future, she hopes to own a store and sell many kinds of fresh vegetables to the people in her community.
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.
