Mrs. Ruos is a 28-year-old married woman who resides in Ang Snoul district. She has been blessed with two children who attend a local primary school. To earn a living, Mrs. Ruos works in a garment factory, sewing.
Presently in parts of her neighborhood, there is a water shortage. On a daily basis the villagers need to go and get their water from a place where there is a source of water. Mrs. Ruos sees that there is a good opportunity to make a business providing water transportation services to those people.
Therefore, Mrs. Ruos would like to borrow funds from HKL and Kiva to purchase a trailer and a large metal container to start providing her service to the people in her commune. She will use a part of her loan to buy a used motorcycle to satisfy the whole family as well.
She will save the income she generates from the business to ensure a brighter future for her children.

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.
