Un is married and a loving mother of seven children. She lives with her family in a rural village of Prey Chhor district, Kampong Cham province. Rice farming is the primary source of her family’s income and she has been in this business for nearly 15 years. Her husband and her children help her to maintain their rice field. With the current business, she is able to earn a net profit KHR 20,000 per day.
This is the fourth micro-loan for Un with HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner. She would like to acquire a loan of KHR 2,000,000, which she will use to buy two cows for the maintenance of the rice fields. She hopes to continue working with the funds and improving her current business. She thanks lenders for their generosity towards less fortunate people like her.
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.
