A loan of $500 helped to dig a well for family use.


Sam An's story

Sam An (in the photo), age 47, his business is in buying and selling recycling materials. His wife, Min, age 34, is a garment worker. They have been married for six years and they have three children-two sons and one daughter. One attends school and other two are still young.

Sam An is applying for his first Kiva loan in order to dig a well for family use. Because he does not have his own well, he needs to use his neighbors’ well every day.
