A loan of $800 helped to purchase a motorcycle for her husband's commute.

Kriel's story

Kriel is a skillful basket-weaver who lives in the Pouk district of Siem Reap province. Along with baskets, she makes other containers and objects by weaving thin strips of wood or bamboo. She learned this skill from her parents, and she typically earns approximately $4.00 per day by selling to the traders who regularly visit her home to purchase her wares. Kriel is 29 years old and has a common-law husband who is a driver.

Kriel is requesting a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a motorcycle for her husband so he can commute to his workplace. This will help to reduce their expenses, enabling her to save more money in hopes of achieving her dream: to have a store for selling her handmade products in the neighboring country of Thailand.
