Chuyen's story

Ms. Chuyen, age 49, she is a married woman with two children. She has been running a small restaurant for many years.

She is a good cooker in her hometown and she offers breakfast to local people. She wants to expand on her business.

She is finding funds for her idea and she is applying for a Kiva loan. Because her small restaurant is very popular with stable monthly income, she believes she will pay back the loan easily with this income.
