Yien, a 29-year-old married woman, sews clothes in a garment factory in the Ang Snoul district. She is able to earn approximately $3.00 each day to support her family.
Her husband is a construction worker.
This couple is blessed with two children who attend a local public school.
Yien has encountered a difficulty in traveling to work. She doesn’t have her own motorcycle, so every day she has to spend money taking a motor taxi service.
Now Yien would like to ask for some funds from HKL and Kiva to buy a second-hand motorcycle.
This loan will help her family reduce its transportation expenses.

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.
