Chantha is a humble villager from Prey Chhor district, a public gathering area in Kampong Cham province. Chantha has a common-law marriage with her husband, a farmer and hardworking father of two children. Chantha works alongside her husband in the paddy fields during the rice-growing season.
Chantha wants to provide enough for her family, so she aims to devote her time and capital to the animal-trading business. In order to enter into the animal-trading business, an initial investment is needed to purchase the animals. Chantha is asking for a loan of 700 US dollars to add to her own capital to buy two cows to fatten and then trade for a profit.
With the help of a loan, Chantha believes she can start her new business venture and increase her household income. She thanks the lenders for their generosity and goodwill towards the poor by helping others overcome their hardships and financial limits in life.
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.
