Man's story

Mrs. Man Y. is a humble woman who lives in a rural area of Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. She earns about US$4 per day from selling fresh fish at Chrang Chomres market. Mrs. Man Y. has five children: one is now married and lives outside of the family home, while the other four are no longer in school and are employed at different jobs. She has a life partner in her husband who is shown in the picture above. He assists his wife in delivering fish to the market for sale.

Man Y. has a son who wants to have a life partner in his wife but he needs to hold a wedding party. Because the family doesn’t have enough money yet, Man Y. decided to request a loan of US$1,100 from Kiva lenders to pay for a wedding party for her son.
