A loan of $800 helped to buy a solar home system to install in her home.


Sorn's story

Sorn is a hard-working and a widowed woman, with three children, living in the Preah Sdach district of Prey Veng province. She is 37 years old and a rice farmer. Besides her farming chores, she also runs a small grocery store in her village for additional income.

Sorn wants to have enough energy for her household and to reduce monthly expenses by purchasing a solar home system to install in her home. Due to inadequate funds, she has requested a loan in the amount of USD 800 (US dollars) from Kiva, through its partner, Hattha Kakesekar Limited (HKL).

After this initial investment, Sorn hopes to have clean energy to support her household appliances, such as light, TV, and radio. She is very happy and thankful because, with this loan, HKL has provided her with a special interest rate, rather than its general loan. She awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.
