Mrs. Pork, from Reussey Keo commune, is a 27-year-old married woman. She is in the business of making clothes for both men and women. She has been engaged in this job since 2008. There are many customers who come to her shop to have her adjust, repair and make clothes every day. With her skill in clothes making, she can earn around 3 USD per day for their household expenses. Mrs. Pork is married with two children who are both still single. Her husband works as a construction supervisor in a mobile place.
Mrs. Pork would like to borrow some funds from HKL and Kiva in order to support her husband's business. She wants to use this fund to purchase construction materials. This is her third loan with Kiva. With the previous loans, Mrs. Pork repaid punctually and successfully.
In the future, she hopes that she will be able to provide her two children with great opportunities to attend the university.
