Mrs. Ka, 54, sells dried fish from a rented booth in the Toul Sangke market for her livelihood. This business earns her a good profit; she typically generates approximately $5 per day. Ka has presently run out of stock for constant sales. Therefore, she has requested her seventh loan from HKL, as well as her third loan from Kiva, to refill her stock of dried fish. She hopes that she’ll be able to create more income for her family because there are many people getting to know her and her products in the market. She is an honest person who repaid her previous loans successfully. She is very grateful that all lenders continue assisting her in the business.
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.
