Mrs Leng, 57, is a single mother who has a married child, living in Dongkor commune, not far away from Phnom Penh city. Everyday Leng sells fish porridge to the people in the commune for their breakfast and she is able to generate income approximately $1.33 per day. However, the family’s main source of income is from her daughter who works as a garment worker and her son-in-law, who provides a Tuk Tuk service.

Leng wants to acquire her first loan from HKL and Kiva to fix her house and cover the ground with concrete. Leng hopes to get a comfortable living after her house is fixed. She is very happy and grateful for the support from our lenders.

About HKL

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
