Suk’s living depends on rice farming, hog-raising and a sari-sari, or grocery shop. She has been running her shop for almost five years, typically earning about 14,000 KHR a month. Her husband works managing the farm while Suk pays more attention to the hogs and her shop.
Suk is applying for a third loan from HKL and Kiva, this time for 2,500,000 KHR. She will use it to buy more stock for her store such as snack foods, sweets, spices, canned items, noodles, etc. With the remaining amount she will buy feed to fatten her pigs.
Suk is very happy and thankful that she has the opportunity to receive financial assistance for her business.
