A loan of $1,000 helped to expand her sister's food-selling business.


Tem's story

Tem N., age 46, is widowed and resides with her children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has three children.

N. raises pigs at home, earning an income of approximately US$2 per day. By doing so, she is able to cover her family expenses, especially the children’s education. She has been with this business since 1979.

N.’s sister (pictured here) sells food in her village, earning an income of US$3 per day. Her standard of living has been improved since she has operated her business, so N. wants to obtain a loan to expand it. She is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to expand her sister’s business. This is her second loan from CREDIT, Kiva’s partner.
