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

A loan helped to buy fish and other materials for making fish paste to sell at the market.

Ei's story

Ei is 53 years old, married and the mother of one child. Her husband is a worker and she makes and sells fish paste. She has been running this business for one year.

Ei has applied for a 4,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy fish and other materials for making her fish paste to sell 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 standard of living. Her main challenges are competitors and the high price of fish.

She hopes that she can grow her business and renovate her home.
