Lumorng's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to pay for her house renovation.


Lumorng's story

Lumorng is 28 years old and a married woman. Her family consists of her and her husband. Together, they're living in a rural village of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. To be responsible and a breadwinner of the family, Lumorng is a construction worker and earns approximately $80 per month that is barely enough to cover her daily costs. She and her husband work very hard to improve her family's living standard.

Due to a shortage of finance, Lumorng is asking for a loan to pay for her house renovation. At this moment, Lumorng's home is under construction and she needs more equipment such as cement, roofing tiles and sand. She hopes that, through the help of this loan, she can provide everyone in her family with a suitable place to live and comfortable living conditions.

Lumorng thanks all lenders making a loan through a program like Kiva via its partners. HKL is able to help low-income people gain access to sanitation and personal hygiene.

Thanks for supporting her family at the time they're experiencing financial difficulties.
