Sari K. is 33 years old. She is married and resides with her four children in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, an area known for its rubber plantations. Sari sells fish, earning an income of USD 6 per day. Her husband operates a tractor for hire, earning an income of USD 5 per day to help cover the family's expenses. Each month, the family must spend USD 91 on food and USD 30 on other necessary expenses.
Sari is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to purchase more fish to resell. In the future, she would like to use the additional income to repair her house. This will be her first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner.
