A loan of $500 helped to buy some cows for use on his farmlands.


Khoem's story

Khoem is a 53-year-old married man with four children. He is from Kompong Speu province of Cambodia and is a farmer. Two of his children have started their own families, so he lives with his wife and his two single children. Khoem is very hard-working; besides farming, he earns money by playing traditional Khmer instruments for wedding parties and other ceremonies as needed.

With the coming rainy season, Khoem is concerned about his farming business because he has no strong animals for plowing the fields. He is requesting a loan from HKL and Kiva to buy some cows for use on his farmlands. He hopes that he’ll be able to expand his business and gain more profit in the future.
