Hour, 35, is the mother of three school-aged children.
She is a fish vendor in the busy market in Siem Reap Province. Every day in early morning, she goes to buy fish from the fishermen to sell. Hour’s husband makes additional income by using his boat to pick up passengers for fees.
Hour's business is going smoothly. She has a lot of regular customers who buy and eat her fish. She hopes to be able to look for extra income by using a Kiva loan to purchase a large quantity of fish to sell.
