A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase sacks of fertilizer and other farm supplies to sell.


Chou's story

Chou is twenty-nine years old and sells supplies from her home to the farmers in the village. She sells items like fertilizer, animal feed, and medicines for animals. She also raises pigs for slaughtering in a pen behind her house. Another source of family income comes from her husband who distills white wine. He also provides a service for a fee of hulling his neighbors' rice on his milling machine. Chou says that she manages her investment more successfully as the number of her regular customers increases. Recently, some of her supplies have been exhausted, so she wants to restock and is requesting a loan from Kiva’s partner, HKL, to purchase twenty-five sacks of fertilizer and a variety of other farm supplies to sell.
