Question about English (US)

What is the difference between hamper and hinder?
Feel free to just provide example sentences.

I understand while "hamper" implies the meaning of "shackle," "hinder" implies that of "keep back." However, I still don't see the distinct difference in the meanings, and don't see if I can use these like "It hampered the progress" and "It hindered the progress." If I can use them in the both ways, could you give me examples explaining in which case I shouldn't use "hamper" or "hinder"?
