Sok, 54, is a lovely mother of four children who lives in a small community of Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. In the last twenty years, she has been involved in an agri-business. By owning farmland, she is able to grow rice and sell the product to the local dealers and sometimes she sells directly to customers at the market.
Sok goes to sell her product at the market that is located far away from her house. To get there, she would spend much time and energy as she normally does by bicycle. To ensure a comfortable way for delivering her rice product to the market, Sok really needs a motorbike to serve as her primary transportation. Due to the lack of budget, she is now applying for a Kiva loan through HKL to buy a motorbike. She would like to thank all the lenders for their generosity.
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.
