A loan of $300 helped to buy a sewing machine for her tailoring business.


Sithon's story

Sithon, 36, is a single woman and lives in a village of the Ou Reang Ov district of Kampong Cham province. She is a rice farmer and she supplements her family’s income through working as a tailor in the village. She has been in this business for ten years, earning about US $5 per day and managing to save about US $2 each day after daily expenses.

Sithon is a first-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is seeking a loan of US $300. She is going to use this loan to buy a sewing machine for her tailoring business. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from the current business so as to improve her standard of living.
