Suk's story

Suk is 43 years old and a married woman who has been living with her husband in a peaceful village in the Baray district. She has been married for a long time, but unfortunately she has no children yet. She hopes to have one before she becomes too old.

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.
