Yem's story

Yem is a resident living in Prey Chor district, which is a public gathering area and a central district surrounded by other Kompong Cham districts. The region is located in an area of high agricultural prevalence; it is very fertile and close to her home. Yem has been in farming for years and has gained valueable experience, which allows her to have better yields in each harvest season. Aside from farming, Yem can make additional income by selling steamed sweet corn from her old bike, generating approximately KHR 10,000 each day.

Yem wants to build a room on the ground floor to keep the personal belongings of her family, yet she doesn’t have enough money to buy some materials for the construction. That is why she is now taking out a loan through HKL as her first Kiva loan. Through this loan, she believes that she will be able to make better living conditions for her family.
