Un, a 65-year-old woman, has been residing in the Baray district of Kompong Tom province. She was born on the family farm, and the farming business has been the main source of her income ever since. Her husband had left her two legacies of children, leading her to try very hard in raising them alone and providing them a valued education. Both of her children are employed now and can earn a living independently.
With the amount Un has requested from HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner, Un would like to purchase a motorcycle for her son to commute to work as he is now a local policeman. This will help her family with their transportation needs. She hopes that lenders will continually support her family, and she is very thankful for their kindness. She promises to pay her loan back on time and punctually as scheduled.
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.
