Toch's Group's story

Toch Y. is 45 years old, married, and has three children. She lives in Kompong Chhnang Province and is the one resident who is straightforward and conscientious. She is hardworking so that she can help support her family live a better quality of life and her children can receive a good education at university.

To upgrade her family's standard of living, Toch has been running a business as a fish and vegetable seller in one market near her village. She has been in this business with her husband since 1995. Toch is successful in this business because she has good relationships with her customers and is experienced in this trade. She is able to earn approximately $5 per day to cover her family’s daily expenses.

Toch wants to see her business grow and earn more profits. She is requesting a loan through HKL, a Kiva partner, to expand her business. She will use this loan to purchase more fish and vegetables to satisfy her clients. She has chosen HKL because it provides good services, lower interest rates than other banks, and long-term periods for repaying her loan. She is hoping that this loan will allow her to expand her business. She plans on repaying the loan punctually. Toch's dream in the future is seeing her children get a good education and have good jobs. This is her first loan with HKL.
