Makara's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Makara's story

Makara is 30 years old, is married and is the mother of three children. Her husband is a worker. She makes her living from buying and selling fish. She has been running this business for 10 years. Her main challenges are more competitors and insufficient capital.

She has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy more fish to sell at the market. Using the loan, Makara 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, renovate her home and send her children to school.
