Mrs. Lep, 65, owns a coffee shop along the street Km09, Reussey Keo commune, Phnom Penh. She has three children, two of whom live together with her and help work in her coffee shop when they get free time from school. She has been involved in this business since 2005.

Since her shop has good decorations and provides free TV watching, there are many customers who come to buy and drink coffee while relaxing there. Presently her business is running well and she can yield around $5 per day.

Mrs. Lep is requesting a loan from Kiva’s lenders in the amount of $1,000 to invest in her business. She believes that this loan will help improve her business and make more profit. With the increase in income, she’ll fix her house partially and save for future growth of her business.
