Meas S., age 58, lives in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. Since 1985, she and her husband Norng Song, age 62, have worked growing rice to earn a living and are able to earn around $2.50 per day. So far, they have dug a pond to raise fish for extra profit. This couple has seven children, three of whom are married and no longer live at home.
Mrs. S. would like to request a loan of $800 from Kiva via Credit, a local partner, to purchase more fish to raise and feed for the fish.
