Kem's story

Kem S., 54, is married and lives with her husband and eight children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for pre-Angkorean temples.

S. and her husband grow rice to sell, earning an income of about USD 2.50 each per day. Three of her children are employed at different workplaces, earning an income of about USD 3 each per day to help cover the family expenses. Every month the family has to spend USD 35 on food, USD 10 on electricity supply, and USD 15 on their children’s education.

S. is requesting a loan of USD 1,200 to purchase a motorbike for her children to use to commute to work. In the future, she would like to use any additional profit to repair her house. This is her first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia.
