Rourm's story

Rourm T., 50, is married and lives with her two children in Battambong Province, Cambodia. Rourm is a skillful chef for wedding parties. She has to travel to many places in her province to provide her cooking services. She is able to generate an income of USD 8 per day to assist the family. Rourm has been in this business since 1996. Her husband (pictured here) helps his wife in the business, and when he is available, operates his motorbike as a driver, earning USD 5 per day. Rourm and her family members work hard and help each other to ensure a good standard of living for their family. They are seeking to improve their businesses as well as meet the daily living expenses. As a result, Rourm T. is requesting a loan of US $1200 from CREDIT, Kiva’s partner. She wants to use the loan to rent a food stand at a local market to sell food. This is her first loan from CREDIT.
