A loan of $700 helped house repairs.

Kourch's story

Kourch H., 51, is married and resides with his wife and two children in Phnom Penh City, Cambodia: an area known for being the most populated area in the country. H. is a motor-taxi driver, earning an income of about USD 5 per day. His wife sells fried bananas, earning an income of about USD 7 per day. The family has to spend USD 75 on food, USD 12 on electricity and water supplies, and USD 35 on other necessary expenses every month.

H. is requesting a loan of USD 700 to repair his house. In the future, he would like to use any additional profit to send his children to good schools. This is his first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia.
