Mrs. Chhouk R., 32, sells various kinds of vegetables in Battabang Province, and earns approximately $3 profit a day. She has a life partner in her husband (pictured here) who works in the construction field. This couple has three children. Two of them are single and study in public school, and the remaining one is a worker. Mrs. Chhouk R. works at construction every day. Mrs. Chhouk R. said that it is a good chance for her to expand her business but her saving account is adequate to make it possible. Therefore, Mrs. Chhouk R. would like to request a loan from Kiva in order to buy more vegetables to sell.
