Yos's story

Yos Y. is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia, an area known for palm products. Y. and her husband are farmers. They grow rice for the family's use. The two children are employed at a local garment factory, earning an income of about USD 5 each per day to help cover the family's expenses.

In the future, she would like to use any additional profit to run a business of selling groceries in front of her house. This is her first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia.
