Sotheary's story

Sotheary is a 29-year-old widow and the mother of one child. For the past three years she has sold cooked rice, Chinese noodles and other dishes to earn an income. Her mother is the cook. Her main challenge is insufficient capital to develop the business.

Sotheary has applied for a 600 USD loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy meat, vegetables and other ingredients to make the food she sells. Using the loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business as well as support her family's living standards.

Sotheary’s future hopes are to grow her business, renovate her home and send her child for a higher education.
