Run is from Pouk district, located in Siem Reap province. She was born and grew up there. She is twenty-nine years old and married with three single children who are attending school. She works as a local rice farmer and takes some time at home to weave bamboo baskets to help her husband generate income for the family. She has been active in the two businesses for many years.

With the amount she requested from HKL, Run wants to buy construction supplies to fix her house partially as it needs to be repaired before the rainy season arrives or it will suffer from the rain. She feels very happy to receive these funds to renovate her house and make it a suitable shelter.

About HKL

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.

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.
