A loan of $700 helped buying more food to sell.


Chanthy's story

S. Chanthy, 43, has made coffee and instant noodles to sell since 1998 with a daily income of $12. Her husband, 46, is a motor-taxi driver who earns $5 per day. Together, they have 3 children who are all of school-age, so they need to earn more to balance their income and expenses. Due to the reason mentioned earlier, she wants to take a loan from Kiva of $700 to expand her current business. If her business succeeds, she will be able to build a new house and also support her children to study at a good school.
