Hoi's story

Hoi, who appears in the photo, is a 47-year-old woman. She is said to be a diligent mother of three children and a reliable neighbor. The village where Hoi is living is in a developing city. For more than 10 years, Ms. Hoi has earned a living by growing cajeput trees. This is a profitable tree and people use it to make cajeput oil. Cajeput oil is a strong, camphoraceous oil that is prominently used in aromatherapy to soothe respiratory distress. It is also used for making balms and salves.

She is requesting a loan from Kiva to invest in this kind of tree, in particular to buy fertilizers for the trees. She is optimistic that she can earn money from this business and support her children with their education. She is thankful for your help.
