Mr. Suon D., 45 years old, offloads cement from trucks into factories. Normally, he hires some laborers to help him with the process, paying them when he is remunerated by the factory owner. Suon’s wife has a business making and selling food to the workers from a food stand, earning, on average, $5 per day. Suon’s wife is a good cook and in the future she wants to open a small restaurant. He has requested a loan of $1,000 from Kiva to expand his wife’s food stand, with the remaining money to be used to pay for his laborers’ wages until the factory owner pays him later in the month.

His wife is pictured because Mr. Suon Dara was not available.
