Oeurn S. and her husband work by planting mushrooms around their house. From this business, this family normally earns an average of $4 per day to help cover their family’s daily living expenses. Presently, when Oeurn S. needs to use the water, she always goes to take it from her neighbor’s well because she doesn’t have a well of her own. Oeurn S. is seeking a Kiva loan to dig a well for the whole family to use and to expand her mushroom-planting business.
