A loan of $500 helped to purchase additional grocery items.


Sophan's story

Sophan sells grocery items in her village and her husband is a construction worker. They have been married since 2000 and have three children - one son and two daughters. Two of the children are in school and one is still too young. The family lives in a village across the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Sophan has already asked for a Kiva loan to buy grocery items for resale. She hopes to continue expanding her business because it is doing well. Therefore, she has applied for another loan in the amount of $500 to buy more grocery items for her inventory.
