Prak's story

Prak, 42, is a single mother who engages herself in sewing clothes and raising pigs in her village to generate a living. Because of financial difficulties, Prak has commitment to work tirelessly in order to raise her family of three children, two of whom now are working for a garment factory in Phnom Penh city while the other one is still a student. Prak is not just providing sewing services to local people in her commune but is also a professional seamstress. Presently she lives with her children in Baray district, Kompong Tom.

To improve her business and make a stable living, Prak decided to look for a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase fabrics for her sewing business.
