Maut is a resident of the region of Reussey Keo, Phnom Penh. He, aged 64, is married and is an industrious father of three children. Two of them are currently employed in local garment factories, and the other one provides motor-taxi services to the surrounding area. Likewise, Maut has operated a transportation business, providing Tuk Tuk services, and he makes approximately $10.00 per day.
Maut wants to help his son start providing Tuk Tuk services like what he does to increase his daily income. In order to start activities, he needs to buy a trailer, which can be linked to the existing motorbike for a transportation business. He has insufficient funds. Therefore, he applied for a loan and hopes that his goal will be realized with the loan support from Kiva.
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.
