Nam's story

Nam is 41 years old, a widow and the mother of two children. She and one of her children are making and selling smok Khmer. She has been running this business for two-and-a-half years.

Nam has applied for a $750 USD loan through Kiva's field partner, Chamroeun, to purchase palm leaves and other materials for making her goods 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 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.
