Tem's story

Tem S., 45, is married and resides with her husband and six children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for pre-angkorean Temples. S. and her husband are farmers and raise cows, earning an income of USD 5.00 per day. Two of her children are employed as a driver and a garment factory worker, earning an income of about USD 4.00 per day. The family has to spend USD 30.00 on food, USD 10.00 on public transportation, and USD 15.00 on other necessary expenses every month.

S. is requesting a loan of USD 1,200 to purchase cows and a motorbike for the family's use. 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. S.'s husband appears in the photograph because S. was not available.
