A loan of $700 helped to buy two more sewing machines for her tailoring business.


Pichdara's story

Pichdara (in the photo), age 30, is a tailor. Her husband, Rim, age 30, is a driver for a garment factory. The couple has been married since 2010 and they have no children yet. They live about 20 kilometers from the city of Phnom Penh in Cambodia.

Currently, Pichdara has one sewing machine. She wants to hire more tailors to expand her tailoring business but she does not have enough sewing machines. Therefore, Pichdara is asking for her first Kiva loan in the amount of $700 in order to purchase two more sewing machines for her tailoring business.
