To earn a living, Mrs. Hong, age 46, works hard to ensure that her family lives in suitable conditions. She now has six children. Two of her children are married and live in separate houses and the other four are living under her income. Presently, she is a fish seller in one market far away from her community. From this business, she is able to earn about $2 per day. Currently, she would like to have a new motorbike for supporting her business, so she has decided to request some funds through HKL partner Kiva in order to purchase a new motorbike. She hopes that this fund will make her business earn more profit. She said that she is very grateful to all lenders who support funds for her family. She commits that she will pay back on schedule.
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.
