Besides a farming business, Mrs. Chan, 50, is a fish seller in a local market of Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She generates an income of around $2.00 per day through this business. Presently she has four children, three of whom are living together with her in their home.
Now it’s time for her to grow her dry-season rice again. And Mrs. Chan would like to ask for a loan from Kiva to purchase a plowing machine to progress well with her work. These funds will improve her farming business. For her future goal, Mrs. Chan intends to expand her farmland and increase her output for sale.
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.
