Somaly's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more stone for her carving business.

Somaly's story

Somaly is 36 years old, married and a mother of three children. She and her husband are in the carving business. She has been running this business for 10 years.

Somaly has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner, Chamroeun, to buy more stone for her carving business. With this loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business and support her family's living standards. She hopes that she can grow her business and renovate her home.

Her main challenges are competitors and customers buying on credit.
