Sokh is 39 years old and is a married woman who has been living in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She has a life partner with her husband and is blessed with four single children.
Sokh has been operating a pig-raising business, followed by a rice business, earning approximately $1.50 USD per day. Her husband manages a business of selling firewood with one of her children, going through the nearby commune and markets of the province. At the present, this business has run out of its stock. Because of this, Sokh’s family is experiencing financial difficulties. Therefore, Sokh is looking for finances from HKL to purchase stock of the firewood to sustain her family-owned business. This is her third cycle loan with HKL as well as a first one with Kiva. Sokh is an honest client of our firm. As experienced, she has never made any late payments.
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.
