Oun resides in Prey Veng province, Cambodia, an area known as one of the largest rice producing regions in Cambodia. Oun is a housewife while her husband is a farmer, earning an income of USD 2 per day to help cover the family's expenses.
Each month, the family has to spend USD 20 on food and USD 25 on the other necessary expenses. Oun is requesting a loan of USD 1200 to purchase a plot of farmland to improve her family's farming business. This will be her first from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner.
