Sophat's story

Sophat, 22, lives in a small community of Battambang Province. He has only one child, who is currently in school. To make a living and support his family, he manages and operates a rice farming business on farmland which is located near his house. He has been involved with this business since 2010. He is able to earn a daily income of USD 5.00, on average. Sophat wants to have household energy at a reduced monthly cost by purchasing a solar energy home system. Because there is inadequate money, he has requested a Kiva loan through its partner, HKL. After this initial investment, he hopes to have clean energy to power his household lights, TV, and radio. He is very happy and thankful because, with this loan, HKL has provided him a special interest rate lower than its general loan rates. He awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.
