Yen's story

Yen S., 37, has been employed as garment factory worker since 2005. She makes a profit of US$3 per day. Her husband, Chea Tep, 43, is a rice farmer, but his farm is just to support the family from day to day. He also works as a fisherman and sells his catch to the market to earn approximately US$3 per day. Fishing is not stable. He does not have enough fishing tools and sometime he catches few fish. This couple has five children, two of whom are employed and three other who are students. Yen wants her children to get a bachelor degree rather than work as farmers. Farmers use a lot of labor but make little profit. She is asking a loan from Kiva to purchase more fishing tools for her husband. This will allow her husband to catch more fish.
