Tun's story

Mrs. Tun, age 30, live in Ornlong Veng district of Siem Reap province.

She has a life partner in her husband who works as a local farming cultivator. To earn a living, Mrs. Tun, like other villagers, makes plastic kindling that can be used to make a fire. She sells the kindling in a local market or to her neighbors.

Mrs. Tun has three single children, some of whom are attending a local state school. Besides her business, Mrs. Tun helps her husband plant rice crops on the farm. The family typically earns an income of approximately $4.5USD per day. Mrs. Tun has run out of raw materials from her stock supply. To solve this problem, Mrs. Tun is looking for a loan from Kiva to buy additional materials for her business.

In the future, Mrs. Tun wishes to improve her income. With an increase in income, she hopes that she will be able to enlarge their existing house and send her children to finish school, at least through the high school level.
