Suon has been a fish farmer with her husband for several years. She owns a pond farm adjacent to her house, where she manages to breed fish to generate income. Suon enjoys working in this type of business because the fish will lead her to higher profits at the local market, allowing her to improve her business and improve her family’s living standards.
She mentioned that the fish are resilient to adverse water conditions, fetch high prices, and show strong year-round demand from buyers. However, Suon still needs more techniques to save her pond, while the climate seriously changes and the water level reaches great heights. Suon would like to request a loan from Kiva lenders to help her keep running a sustainable business and having a good profit. She will use the loan to buy feeds to give enough nutrition to her fish. She thanks lenders who will help her and her family with the loan and give her the opportunity to develop her business.
