Prey Chor, Cambodia / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $700 helped to purchase construction supplies, which will allow her to make essential repairs to the family house.


Heng's story

Heng, age 43, is a rice farmer in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province, Cambodia. In addition to her farming business, she raises pigs. She has been involved in these businesses for many years. She has gained a good deal of experience from this work, allowing her to expect positive business growth in the coming years.

Heng's husband also cultivates rice. This humble couple has five children, two of whom are enrolled in school and three of whom are working as factory workers in Phnom Penh city, where they can earn reasonable monthly salaries.

In order to upgrade the family's living standards, Heng would like to apply for a loan through HKL, a partner with Kiva, for the purpose of purchasing construction supplies, which will allow her to make essential repairs to the family house. Heng hopes eventually to have a house that is more comfortable for her family to live in.
