Yun H., age 37, lives in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. Since 2000, she has been growing vegetables and selling it in the market to earn a living and is able to earn around $1 each day. Her husband, Tuon Try, age 38, is a construction worker who has built houses since 1998. On average, he makes about $2 each day. This couple together has four children, one of whom works in Phnom Penh weaving bags, and provides $100 each month to support the family.
Mrs. Yun H. would like to ask for a loan from Kiva via Credit, a local partner, to purchase a stand in the market for her son who weaves bags in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
