A loan of $1,250 helped to buy cashew nuts in bulk from local villagers to stock for future sale..


Phon's story

Phon, 64 years old and married, has been managing her hog-raising business for almost ten years. Describing herself as a patient and industrious woman, she is also involved in making and selling Khmer cakes in the community, earning approximately USD 2.00 per day.

Phon is now requesting a loan from HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner, to buy cashew nuts in bulk from local villagers to stock for future sale. Based upon experience in previous years, she believes that this project will result in significant revenue which she will use to develop her hog-raising business and save for any future emergencies in her family.
