A loan of $1,000 helped to expand her dried fish-selling business.


San's story

Mrs. San R. K., 48 years old, sells dried fish in the Kilomet 6 market in Phnom Penh City. She takes care of seven children, two of whom contribute about $4 a day to the family by working in the garment factory; the rest are students. Her husband, Mr. Tes Ya, drives a motorcycle taxi and earns about $2 a day.

She is now asking for a loan of $1000 to expand her dried fish-selling business and further her children’s studies. She thanks Kiva and promises to be prompt in repaying her loan.
