Mrs. Chhem C., age 37, is a local tailor who has been skilled in the enterprise since 2004, sewing both traditional and modern clothes for men and ladies who need them for parties and ceremonies. Her husband ( who appears in the picture above) is a Khmer musician who plays for wedding parties. The family lives with their two children, both of whom attend the local public school. Chhem C.'s husband now needs more instruments to perform his musical services, so she is requesting a loan from Kiva’s partner HKL.
