Ran has been engaged in a sewing business since 2007. She works for a garment factory in Phnom Penh city and usually gets a monthly salary. She is now 26 years old and a mother of a small child who is at the age for attending school. As shown in the picture, Mrs. Ran has a small farm in her yard where she has raised some piglets for more profit. If this business becomes successful, she will expand this piggery and raise many piglets at the same time. With this loan amount from Kiva’s funders, she will buy 13 head of piglets and 10 sacks of feed for her project. She is very happy and appreciate the support. In the future, she hopes to provide a good quality of life to her family and to ensure a bright future for her child.
