A loan of $600 helped increase banana inventory.


Kim's story

Kim Y., 54, purchases bananas from a local farm and transports them to the market to resell for a profit. She typically makes $3.90 each day in the local market and believes that she can expand her business to reach more customers.

She lives in Kampong Cham, Cambodia, with her husband, Sou Sam Ol, and their ten children. Her husband sells traditional Khmer medicines and makes less than $1 each day. The family is also aided by the support of some of the children. Three of their children are employed in Kampong Cham and are able to provide US$100 each month to their parents to help them meet their daily needs.



Through some expansion, Kim Y. believes that her banana business could generate more income for her and her husband and help to lighten the financial burden on this large family. She has asked for a loan of $600 to purchase more bananas and invest in her business. This purchase could increase her inventory and allow her to generate more income in the local food market.
