A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase an additional stock of goods.


Koy's story

Mrs. Koy is a 35-year-old married woman who has been living in the Pouk district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. Presently she lives with her husband and four children. One of her children has started a new family and is living away from home.

Koy earns a living by selling a mix of products in a small store near her house, such as groceries, packaged foods, sweets, canned foods and other products. She has run this business smoothly because she has many customers who come to buy her products every day. She typically makes around $5USD per day. She also gets income from her husband and her two daughters who work hard in the construction field with the men.

Now she lacks capital to buy more products to sell. Therefore, she would like to request some funds from Kiva through HKL to purchase an additional stock of goods for continuing her business. With the rest of the loan, she wishes to buy some piglets for raising to make more income for the family. In the future, Koy hopes she’ll be able to raise their standard of living and to enlarge her business to be bigger than before.
