A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a rice-husking machine.


Saing's story

Mrs. Saing, 25, is a farmer and pig-raiser. She lives in Baray district of Kompong Cham province. She has a common-law relationship with her husband who provides a trailer-motorcycle service in and around the community. Together, this couple is able to earn a good income of $15 per day from their businesses. With this income, Saing has saved some money and kept it for using in a future business.
Saing is a smart and hopeful housewife who always takes care of the family and maintains her business growth. With a loan of $1,200 from HKL, Kiva’s partner, Saing will buy a rice-husking machine that can be used in the family. Furthermore, she will be able to provide a rice-husking service to local villagers in exchange for money, or she can buy rice with outer cover at a low price from local farmers, and then start husking its cover for sale at a profitable price. In the future, Saing hopes to provide her child with great opportunities and the chance to join a university in Phnom Penh.
