Sos, 73, works very hard to provide for her family. In addition to farming rice, she makes and sells Khmer cakes to locals to earn additional income. She has been working in these two businesses for years and makes approximately around USD 7.00 per day.
Sos has just repaid her previous loan. Her second loan will allow her to purchase a piece of farmland to expand her rice-growing business. She believes that she will gain more profit with this investment. By continuing to work with HKL, she will be able to develop her business and improve her living standards. She appreciates all the kind lenders who constantly provide her with loans that help her to sustain her living conditions.
