Here is a summary of The Road's 7th social project:
A micro-financing loan to the Kim Houy Lach Group in Cambodia.
Kim Houy Lach from the Ba Khong Khang Kaeut village in Cambodia is 26. She is the mother of two children.
Her husband, Saom Mom, is a farmer who owns a 0.7-hectar plantation and cultivates rice for a living.
Kim is a poultry breeder and has raised about 40 ducks and chickens on the yard near her own house. Since this business is going well, she would like to expand it and asks for a loan to buy more poultry for breeding.
The loan is organised through the village bank which consists of fourteen people in her village. All the members will use the loan for different purposes. (Kim's full profile on Kiva)
