A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more eggs and vegetables.


Som's story

Mrs. Som N., age 53, is married and lives with her two children in Phnom Penh. She and her husband, Mr. Ban Boeun, 59, have a small business selling eggs and a variety of vegetables in a busy market. Typically, they earn a combined income of around $10 a day. One of their children is a student; while the other helps both parents in the market.



To increase their business growth, Mrs. N. would like a loan from Kiva to purchase additional eggs and vegetables to sell in large amounts since she has many customers.
