A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a new boat and boat motor for her husband.

Saras's story

Saras (in the photo) and her husband, Nafy, are the same age, 35 years old. They have been married since 2001 and have two sons and one daughter. Two of the children are in primary school and the other one is still young. The family lives in a suburb of Phnom Penh.

Saras sells fish that her husband catches. In addition, she operates a tailoring business, by putting together fabric swatches for a clothing manufacturer. Her husband is a fisherman. He wants to buy a new boat and boat motor, because the old one is breaking.

Hence, Saras applies for her first Kiva loan of $1,500, to help her husband by purchasing the boat and motor he needs.
