A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a threshing machine to use in her business.


Houn's story

Houn, age 34, lives with her husband and five single children in the Batey district of Kompong Cham province. She works in the same type of business as her husband. Rice farming is the main source of the family’s income. Houn is diligent in her work and tries hard to provide her children with an education, so that they may have good jobs in the future and avoid physical work.

In order to improve her business, Houn would like to borrow a loan from Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL) and Kiva to purchase a threshing machine to use in her business. Also, she can use it to provide threshing services to local farmers in exchange for money or rice. She hopes to earn a better living from this investment.
