Mrs. Som N., age 53, is married and lives with her two children in Phnom Penh. She and her husband, Mr. Ban Boeun, 59, have a small business selling eggs and a variety of vegetables in a busy market. Typically, they earn a combined income of around $10 a day. One of their children is a student; while the other helps both parents in the market.
To increase their business growth, Mrs. N. would like a loan from Kiva to purchase additional eggs and vegetables to sell in large amounts since she has many customers.
