Suon's story

Suon U., 56, is married and lives in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. She works as a rice farmer and makes $1.50 per day. Her husband is a palm tree climber, collecting palm juice. Every morning he goes to collect the palm juice and boil it into palm sugar to earn approximately $2.50 profit per day. Mrs. Suon lives with two of her nine children, and normally she is aided by two of her children who work as garment workers. Mrs. Suon would like a loan from Kiva via Credit, a local partner, of $800 to purchase fertilizer, insecticide, and rice seed to grow for the next season. The price of rice is good in the market so if she can collect more profit, her family’s standard of living will improve. CREDIT MFI is an independent Cambodian faith-based organization. It aims to empower the economically active poor and small entrepreneurs by providing inclusive financial services.
