A loan helped to buy Chinese noodles, meat, vegetables, and other groceries for making food to sell in her store.


Koemlean's story

KoemLean is a 41-year-old widow who is the mother of three children. She sells Chinese noodles. She has been running this business for 2 years.

KoemLean has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy Chinese noodles, meat, vegetables, and other groceries for making food to sell in her store. Using the loan, she 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.

Her main challenges are more competitors and insufficient capital.
