Yem's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy some fertilizers.

Yem's story

At the age of 56, Yem is living in a community of Prey Chhor District, Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has two married children and one unmarried child. To support the family, she is working very hard on her own cassava field and sells the crop to the local dealers and customers in the market. The net profit that she can generate is $5 USD a day. To keep her cassava growing well with more fruit, she normally uses natural fertilizers in her farmland. However, now she can’t afford the fertilizer. She is now requesting a loan to buy some fertilizers to use. She would like to thank all lenders for the financial support via HKL, which provides her with a much lower interest rate than its general loan product.
