Keo is 52 years old and living together with her family in Kampong Chhnang province. She is a local farmer who grows rice crops along with her husband for generating income. Keo has been blessed with eight children, three of whom have started their new families, living separately around the province. And currently, one of Keo’s daughter works for a shoes factory in Phnom Penh city to help the family.
Keo is looking for a loan from HKL and Kiva to add to her capital to buy a plot of land with a house for personal living of the family. Keo is very happy that HKL can help provide the loan to her family while she is in need. This is her first loan with HKL. She is confident to pay her loan back regularly and punctually.
