Eang
Eang is a 38-year-old married woman and a loving mother of two unmarried children. She has a small plantation in Pursat province and grows rice alongside her husband to earn a living. Her parents have transferred this business to her and she has been doing it for years. Their main source of income utterly relies on agriculture.

Eang would like to improve her living standard by having clean energy for household use. Because of the lack of capital, she is asking for a loan in the sum of USD 1,000 to build a biogas digester, under the project of NBP (National Biogas Program) in partnering with HKL. After an initial investment in this system, she hopes that she won’t spend much money on fuel and lessen the smoke from wood or charcoal. She is very happy and thankful, because with this loan purpose, HKL has provided her a special interest rate than its general loan. She awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of HKL's new green loan program designed to help improve living standards of poor and low-income people living in rural areas of Cambodia by giving them access to clean energy. Solar loans under this program allow poor families living off the grid to invest in solar home systems that can power lights, fans, radios, and mobile phones. HKL also disburses loans for biogas digester plants which allow farmers to convert animal and human waste into biogas that can be used to power clean cookstoves and organic fertilizer for their farms. These loans have numerous economic, health, environmental, and social benefits for families which include saving money and time collecting fuelwood, reducing smoke-borne diseases, and allowing family members to do schoolwork and housework in the evening. HKL has designed these social loan products to feature a lower interest rate than typical Kiva loans.
