A loan of $500 helped to buy a couple of cows for farming purposes.


Chhin's story

Mrs. Chhin is a 39-year-old married woman who has been residing in Pouk district, Siem Reap province. To generate her income, Chhin is in two businesses: rice husbandry and making handmade baskets. These two businesses only provide her family with enough daily food. However, the main income is from her husband, who is in an animal-trading business. Chhin has three single children: the oldest one works as a construction worker and the other two are still students.

With the loan requested from HKL, Chhin will use it to buy a couple of cows for farming purpose. She hopes to improve her business through using a Kiva loan and anticipates having a proper house someday.
