Mrs. Yors is in two businesses: she is a fish seller and a crop farmer. She is now 57 years old and a widow, living in Baray district with a daughter who is already married. Her daughter always helps her in both businesses. During season, Mrs. Yors usually starts growing dry-season rice crops and bean crops. However, she really needs some funds from HKL and Kiva to purchase rice seeds and bean seeds for this project. She is very appreciative to all lenders who support her business. With the increase in income, she will save some money to expand her farmland in the coming year.

The organization provides microfinance services to the poor, particularly women, in urban and rural areas. Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand the outreach of HKL’s financial services to a greater number of clients in rural areas of Cambodia.
