Mech is currently busy with her rice farming business due to the coming rainfall. She has successfully borrowed and repaid two previous loans from HKL.

Mech is requesting her third loan which she will use to fix her house, parts of which are in ruin because it is so old. She will purchase wallboards and floorboards to replace broken ones. Her loan will be sufficient for Mech to fix her house on time and she hopes that her loan will provide a comfortable living situation for her family.

About HKL

Hattha Kaksekar Limited is one of the largest and most successful microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
