Sieng R. is a 32-year-old woman who earns a living by selling sour palm juice in her community. She has been working at this business since 2009. On average, she can make around $3 profit per day to use for the family’s expenses. Her husband is a fisherman.
Recently, she planned to open another small business washing motorbikes and cars, but she faces a problem of insufficient finances.
In order to achieve her plan, Sieng R. would like to request a loan from Kiva to add to her current savings to open a station for washing vehicles.
