Mrs. Roth, age 49 years-old, is engaged in doing farming and making baskets to generate her income. She is a widow living with five children in Prey Chor district. At present, three of her children are already married and live independently while the other two are still dependent on her.
Roth is seeking for her second loan from Kiva in order to purchase a stock of rice from the villagers who recently have just finished harvesting their rice. She will keep it as daily food within the year. She is very thankful for the funds given to her to solve her living needs.
