A loan of $600 helped to purchase construction supplies needed for home improvements.


Sok's story

Sok, 60 years old, is married to a fisherman and blessed with six children. They are currently living in a small village in the Reussey Keo district of Phnom Penh.

For almost ten years, Sok has worked as a mobile vendor selling bread. Every day, she gets up early to fill her basket with bread and start her business day by selling her product around her neighborhood. She earns a net profit of about 5 USD a day, while her husband makes 2 USD a day as a fisherman.

Sok would like to acquire a loan in the amount of 600 USD through HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner, to purchase construction supplies needed for home improvements. She will also use a small portion of the loan for her retail business. She hopes that the loan will be granted to her so that she can improve her income and living conditions.
