A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase construction materials in order to expand her house.


Noth's story

Mrs. Noth is 37 years old and lives in Reussey Keo commune. Noth and her husband have four children, one of whom is a garment worker.



To earn a living, she is in the business of selling fish in a local market in the city. She has been engaged in this business since 2005 and she notes that she has many loyal customers. Noth’s husband is a driver for a bus company, which allows him to earn a decent income but which causes him to be away from home most of the time.



Now, Noth is seeking her first loan from HKL and Kiva, which she will use to buy necessary construction supplies to expand her present house. She has already hired local construction laborers to perform this task. She plans on enlarging her present store because it is not large enough to operate her business out of. In addition, she will use the loan proceeds to ensure that her children receive a good education.
