A loan helped to buy fish to sell at the market.


Chhlen's story

Chhlen is a 37-year-old widower who is living with his mother. For two years, he and his mother have smoked and sold fish, as shown in this picture. Chhlen's main challenges are competitors and the fluctuation in price of goods.

Chhlen is requesting a 2,000,000 KHR loan through the Kiva field partner Chamroeun to buy more fish to sell at the market. He will use his loan to earn more income to continue his business as well as support his family. Chhlen hopes to expand his business and renovate his home.
