A loan of $375 helped to buy more charcoal to sell.


Laok's story

Laok, 31, is a married man and father of three school-aged children. He currently opens a small store in front of his house. From this trade he gains a low income per day. Taking time from this business, Laok has been running a small business as a charcoal seller. Here Laok earns about $3 each day also. He now wants to improve his charcoal business but has a lack of capital, so he has decided to request some funds from HKL and Kiva. He will use these funds to purchase more charcoal. He expects that this fund will develop his business and gain more revenue everyday.
