Chab, age 30, is in two businesses at the same time. She is a local rice farmer and is a fresh-fish vendor from a local market in Baray district. Her husband is very supportive to help her in each business. This couple has tried hard because they want to ensure a better living and provide a further education to their two school-age children.
Chab would like to acquire these funds to pay for the process of cultivating dry-season rice. She hopes to produce a good harvest through using the loan from HKL and Kiva.
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.
