Som's story

Som N. makes a living selling chicken and pork porridge to her new and longstanding customers. She earns approximately $2 US per day. She is 51 years old and married with five children. They live in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. Her daughter operates a business designing and sewing clothes, earning $2 US per day to help cover the family's expenses.

Mrs. N. and her family members are seeking to improve their standard of living and to generate a better income. Therefore, N. is asking for a loan of $1000 US to purchase a motorbike to more easily commute to the market to buy goods. The motorbike will also help one of her family members to travel to work more easily and cut back on using public transportation services. This is her second loan from CREDIT, Kiva’s partner.
