Chhuon has a very positive outlook and is always looking for ways to improve her standard of living. She is 38 years old and the caring mother of three school-aged children who depend on her income. In addition to running a rice farm, Chhuon also sells recycled materials as a way to earn additional income to support her family. She has been in the two businesses for more than 10 years while he husband has worked at a construction company.
Chhuon is requesting for a loan for $700 to buy more recycled materials. Through this loan, she is convinced that her sales will increase and generate a better yield. She is very grateful for the help she receives from Kiva lenders and promises to pay her loan back in full.
