A loan of $1,200 helped to build a concrete room under his wooden house and dig a well.

Yan's story

Mr. Yan S. (pictured here) and his wife, Mrs. My Mon, live in a small village off National Road Two, about 18 kilometers south of Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1983 and have two sons and two daughters. Their eldest daughter works in a garment factory while the other three attend school.

Yan has been driving a remoque motor taxi (a motorbike with a trailer attached at the back) for more than 17 years. He carries people and goods from his village to Phnom Penh and back. His wife is a garment factory worker.

Yan has had a previous Kiva loan via Kiva partner, MAXIMA, to finish building his house. He is now requesting another loan of $1,200 USD to build a concrete room under his wooden house as, at present, he has an open-air space that is difficult to protect from the elements. He will also use a part of the loan to dig a well for family use.
