However, she is industrious in her business of cultivating rice in order to ensure a further education of her children. Nim has a life partner in her spouse who serves the people with his construction business.

Nim is asking for her first loan from HKL to pay the fees of the construction workers who are fixing her house. This funding will provide her family a suitable and comfortable house. She is very happy and appreciates the great support from our generous lenders.

About HKL

Hattha Kaksekar Limited is one of the largest and most successful microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
