Sothea, 31, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for pre-angkorean sites.

She is employed at the factory. Her husband sells hand-made brooms at home. This couple works so hard every day for incomes to help cover the family expenses.

Sothea is requesting a loan of USD 500 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to travel to sell brooms. By doing so, he can generate more income.

In the future, she would like to use any additional income to repair her house. This will be her first loan from KREDIT, a longstanding Kiva partner.
