Pil, 54, has been involved in the farming business for over 10 years in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. Pil has tried hard to achieve a satisfied harvest so as to sustain their standard of living. As with other local villagers, Pil grows various kinds of seasonal crops on two hectares of farmland with full support from her husband. Through the years, she recognized the hardship of operating this business. It’s quite hard work. However, Pil has a strong commitment to work out her plans and she dreams of sending some of her children to be educated at a good college someday through her sacrifices.
Recently, Pil has one of her daughters help generate income for the family by selling eggs in a local market of the province, but she has minimal eggs to supply her customers. In order to help her daughter with capital to purchase eggs to stock for a constant sale, Pil would like to take out a loan in the amount of 2,500,000 KHR from Kiva lenders, through HKL. She hopes that lenders will kindly offer this loan which will enable them to go far in their selling business. She is very thankful to all of you in advance.

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.
