So's story

Mrs. So, 47, is a cheerful and hardworking woman who lives in her own home with her husband and their two children. Her children are still economically dependent on her. What she most wants is to offer her family a better quality of life. Since she was very young, Mrs. So has worked selling Khmer traditional medicines. From this business, Mrs. So earns about $3 each day. To supplement her income, her husband works as a firewood seller in front of the house.

Mrs. So and her husband want to have a horse carriage for transporting their firewood but lack the money. Therefore, they wish to request a loan through HKL, a Kiva partner. She and her husband will use this loan to purchase a horse carriage. She hopes to be able to depend on the support of her financiers. In the future, she hopes that this loan will make her financially stable. This is Mrs. So’s first loan with Kiva, and she is very happy to know that she can count on the support of her financiers.
