A loan of $800 helped to fix her house and use the remaining capital for buying more fish.

Ly's story

Mrs. Ly is a 58-year-old from Reussey Keo commune, Phnom Penh City. Since her husband passed away, she is a responsible and hard working mother of two children.

To pursue a better living, she is in the business of selling fish in mobile markets. She typically makes an income of about $5 USD each day from this business. One of her children, 28 and a single woman, also helps support the family by working as a garment factory worker in a local area. She usually gets her salary in monthly payments.

Currently, Mrs. Ly’s house was damaged partially by the weather. She plans to repair it with her savings, which are inadequate. She has requested a loan from HKL, one of Kiva’s partners, in the sum of $800 USD. She’ll use the loan to fix her house and will use the remaining funds as capital for buying more fish.
