A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a plot of fertile farmland for expanding her rice crop-planting business.


Mao's story

Mao, age 53, is a domestic rice farmer from Kompong Speu province. She is able to earn a suitable profit from this business. However, it seems rarely enough to cover her daily costs. Her husband works as a chief villager in his community. Mao is asking for a loan from HKL and Kiva to buy a plot of fertile farmland for expanding her rice crop-planting business. The couple has three children, all of whom are single and employed in various jobs.
