Seng, 50, has been engaged in this business since 2009 and typically earns around 4 USD each day to support her family. She really enjoys her business which is the sole source of her income.
Seng is requesting a loan from the Kiva partner HKL to expand her business by purchasing additional kinds of vegetables to sell. She is thankful to the lenders who help improve her business activities.
