Sreng, 49, who is a lovely mother of five children, lives in the small community of Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. In the last twenty five years, she has been involved in the framing sector. On her farm land, she grows peanuts and sells the product to the local dealers and sometimes she sells directly to customers at the market.
To keep her peanuts growing in a modern agricultural way, Sreng would use some natural fertilizers and some other farming material in her farming process. Since she can’t afford them, Sreng now is requesting a Kiva loan through HKL to buy fertilizers and farming materials. With the support of this loan, she hopes that she can receive more benefits than the previous farming season.
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.
