Mrs. Chroeng, age 51, is the loving mother of four children. Most of her children have quit studying and started working in different kinds of careers. She permanently lives in Reussey Keo commune and her work is dedicated to rice husbandry. She has been involved in the business since 1990, while her husband shares responsibilities by providing a construction service from place to place to generate income.
Mrs. Chroeng would like to take out her third loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a used motorcycle to satisfy the whole family. With any remaining funds, she will pay for the expenses of her farm for the new season. For her business goal, she plans to raise poultry in her yard and generate additional income.
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.
