Tola's story

Tola, 31, is a widower with one child. He lives in the rural area of Svay Rieng province, Cambodia. He's a hardworking man who works as a blacksmith and can earn a net income of $10 per day. Everyday he has expenses for meals and other family needs, so he has to increase his blacksmith business to earn more income for covering these expenses.

Because of his insufficient finances, Tola has applied for a loan in the amount of USD 1,000 to buy equipment for a welding business. Having this help, Tola hopes that he will have enough food everyday, pay for his child's education fee, and save some money for using for other requirements in the future.

Tola sends thanks to all kind Kiva lenders who are contributing their funds to help fellows like him to improve his family's living standard and make his family's economic condition getting better than now.
