A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase groceries in bulk and repair the house.

Oeun's story

Oeun A. has a business selling a variety of groceries in the village since 2004. She has one of the biggest stalls which is why she has many customers. She can make $5 of profit per day. Her husband Ket Thul works collecting resin (rubber tree) and sell it to the rubber plant near his house. On average, he earns around $5/day. This couple has two children, one who is a student and another is too young to attend school.

To meet her customer’s demands and to add more inventory to sell in large amounts she would like a loan from Kiva to purchase groceries in bulk. Bulk purchases will save her some money. Any remaining monies will be used to purchase wood to repair her house, especially the leaking roof which is very difficult in the rainy season.
