Sao's story

Sao is 25 years old, married and is the mother of one child. She sells fresh water as shown in the picture. Her husband is a television repairer. She has been running her business for two years.

Sao has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner, Chamroeun, to buy a new carriage to deliver her goods to sell at the market. Using the loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business as well as support her family's standard of living.

Her main challenges are competition and insufficient capital.

She hopes that she can grow her business, renovate her home and send her child to school.
