Liv's story

Liv Y., 54, is widowed and resides with her husband and two children in Kandal Province, Cambodia: an area known for fertile farmland for growing vegetables. Y. sells fish, earning an income of about USD 3.5 per day. The family has to spend USD 45 on food, USD 10 on electricity and water supplies and USD 10 on other necessary expenses every month. Y. is requesting a loan of USD 1,200 to purchase more fish to resell. 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.
