Thy is 44 years old. She lives with her husband and children in the district of Kampong Cham, a province with a high density of population. The inhabitants work with agriculture, sales and livestock. Like other people in her region, Thy is dedicated to the agricultural sector, growing rice and other seasonal crops to sell as the main source of her income. She has been doing this for almost 20 years. Her husband supports her with her daily farming activities.
Thy has requested a loan in the sum of USD1,000 from Hattha Kaksekar Limited in order to buy a used motorcycle for the family’s transportation needs. That way she'll prevent her family members from paying for daily taxi service and will save more for their future business and emergency needs. She is very thankful to all lenders in advance.
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.
