Chhorn's story

Mr. Chhorn P., 45, is a humble father who has eight children. Three of them are working at different jobs and provide their small incomes to support the family’s food needs. Currently, he owns a car that he uses to supply a taxi service for income (Chhorn P. was busy at his taxi business so his wife is in the photo instead.) His wife stays at home to do housework and also to produce traditional brooms for sale. Since the family’s house is old and too small for them, Chhorn P. has been planning to build a new house for a long time, but he doesn’t have enough money to start the construction. Therefore, he requests a loan of US$1200 from Kiva through HKL to be added to his savings which will enable him to begin building a new house.
