A loan of $500 helped to buy a solar energy system for his home.


Chhon's story

Chhon is 65 years old and a farmer in Prey Veng Province of Cambodia. He operates a farming business in the rice field near his house. So far, he has been a farmer for 40 years, and the net profit that he can make is $5 per day. Chhon would like to improve his living conditions and make life more comfortable by having clean energy like solar to use in his household. Due to insufficient funds, he has applied for a loan from Kiva to buy a solar energy system for his home. This purchase will enable him to gain access to solar electricity which provides power to home devices such as lights, television, and radio. He thanks lenders for the financial support through Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL) which provides him with a much lower interest rate than for its general loan products.
