Khop is 45 years old and a widowed mother of three children. They all live with her in a small house in Siem Reap province. She has been in agriculture for years, farming and raising poultry at home. The income generated is barely enough to feed the family, so her oldest daughter helps generate income by working as a paid worker. Every day her daughter must spend money for a motor-taxi to her workplace because they don’t have their own motorcycle yet. To reduce unwanted expenses, she would like to acquire a loan which enables her to buy a motorcycle to fulfill their needs. This will be her second loan cycle with HKL, and the first cycle with Kiva.
This loan will be a great help for her family. Her dream is to see other children getting a good education.
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.
