A loan helped to repair her old house.

Phorn's story

Phorn, age 34, lives with her family in the area of Angkor Borei district, Takeo province. She earns a living by working as a seller, operating a small convenience shop offering many types of products, including grocery items, snack foods, sweets, powders, canned food, noodles, and miscellaneous household things, to local people in her community. She is very strong in her tasks such as trying to find out what the customer wants or needs by talking to or following them, informing customers about product features and demonstrating their use.

Currently her house is lacking and she has requested a loan in the amount of KHR 7,000,000 to repair her old house. With the help of these funds, she can purchase construction supplies such as bricks, cement, and zinc and pay for labor costs. The advantage of new roofs is protection when it rains, storm protection and clean ceilings that provide comfort for living and waterproofing.

Thanks to the Kiva lenders for their role in the comprehensive development of women like her who want to reduce poverty for their families. Her profits enable her to increase her savings and take care of her needs and those of her children.
