A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase fruits (longan and banana) for resale.

Vanna's story

Mrs. Vanna M. and her husband, Mr. Khoeun Khiev, live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They have been married since 1993 and have three children – one son and two daughters.

Mrs. Vanna M. is a flowers farmer. She grows jasmine flowers and also buys other flowers from fellow villagers to resell in Phnom Penh market. Her husband has been a construction worker for eighteen years, working in the village.

Vanna had previously asked for a Kiva loan to purchase jasmine flowers on contract. She needed to pay money to the farmers before the harvest season. Unfortunately, her mother died and she had to use a part of her loan for the funeral.

She now wants to expand her business by purchasing fruits (longans and bananas) for resale. Hence she is asking for another loan of $1,200 for this purpose.
