Chuon is from the Prey Chor district of Kompong, Cham province. She is 57 years old, widowed, and has a married child. Chuon lives with her daughter and her son-in-law in a house since her husband passed away. She is hard-working woman who pays full attention to her rice farming business to earn income. She also buys and collects palm leaves for a weaving business and transports her finished products to the marketplace.
Due to the lack of the family-owned vehicle, Chuon has encountered difficulties in transporting her products. She is asking for a loan of KHR 500,000 to purchase a used motorcycle to support her business as well as for personal use. She hopes to receive this loan as her fifth cycle loan. She is an honest client of HKL and she already paid off her previous loans successfully.
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.
