A loan helped to buy more brooms to resell at the market.


Phon's story

Phon is 44 years old, married, and the mother of six children. Her husband is a construction worker.

She buys and sells brooms. She has been running this business for 11 years. Her main challenge is more competitors.

Phon has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun, to buy more brooms to resell at the market.

Using the loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business as well as support her family's living standards. She hopes that she can grow her business and renovate her home.
