Year, aged 77, is a widowed woman and lives together with her children from Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She works in the agricultural business and also sells Khmer natural medicine to people around the province. She normally buys her medicines from a local supplier and retails in all of the surrounding areas for extra profit. Her time working in this type of business has given her good experience and she is able to generate approximately KHR 30,000 per day.
Year strives to work hard to cover her living costs and hopes to attain a better quality of life. She would like to increase a large volume of sale by adding more supplies of natural medicines to satisfy her clients. That is why she is requesting a loan in the amount of KHR 2,500,000 from Kiva lenders. She is confident she will repay her debt, and at the same time, she might give her family a good living status. She is very thankful to all kind lenders.
