Mrs. Kan is 48 years old and a loving mother of three single children. She resides in the Prey Chor district of the Kompong Cham province. She is in two businesses: cultivating rice and recycling used materials. After she has just finished the bustle of her farming work, Kan intends to invest her time in collecting the recycled materials from place to place around her commune.
However, she doesn't own a motorcycle for long distance travelling. To solve that problem, she decided to ask for a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a second-hand motorcycle to make good progress in her recycling business. She'll keep the remaining funds as capital to buy recycled materials. She hopes that her business will grow and make her a good income to upgrade her standard of living.
