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


A loan helped to purchase more rattan and tropical fruit trees for making baskets to sell in the market.


Siem's story

Siem is 39 years old and is a married woman with four children. She crafts baskets to sell. Her husband and one of her children are construction workers. She has been making and selling baskets for seven years. Low prices from wholesalers are her major challenge.

She will use this loan to purchase more rattan and tropical fruit trees for making baskets to sell in the market. By making and selling the baskets, she can earn enough money to improve her business and change her family's living standards. She hopes she can renovate her house, expand her current business and send her children to universities in the future.
