A loan of $500 helped buy raw silk to produce silk products.


Rem's story

Rem C., 53, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for pre-Angkorean temples. C. and her husband are farmers, earning an income of about USD 1 each per day. Two of her children are employed at factories, earning an income of USD 3 each per day to help cover the family expenses.

C. has to spend USD 40 on food, USD 5 on electricity and water supplies, and USD 60 on other necessary expenses every month. C. is also a skillful weaver, so C. is requesting a loan of USD 500 to purchase raw silk to produce more silk products. 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.
