A loan of $250 helped to build a pen and purchase piglets for fattening.

Chhoem's story

Chhoem is 41 years old, married and has four children – two of whom are married. She earns a living by working hard at a farming business while her husband works in construction, making wooden houses. Her husband has a good reputation and works for many clients around Kampot province. Chhoem wants to raise her household income by going into the business of raising pigs. Because she does not have enough money to do this, she is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders to build a pen and buy piglets for fattening. Chhoem hopes that that this will allow her to uplift her family out of poverty someday and educate her children.
