Chhun's story

Chhun M., 35, is married and resides with her two young school-aged children and husband in Battambong in Cambodia. Since 2006, she has been selling roast beef and boiled duck eggs to earn a living and is able to make around US$5 each day. Every day she always prepares stuff and then walks her trailer from house to house to sell beef and duck eggs. Her husband is a construction worker building houses and makes US$3.50 per day. She said on average she spends around US$40 on food each month, US$10 on utilities and US$30 on children’s education.

Chhun M. would like to take out a loan of US$1200 from Kiva via Credit, the local partner, to purchase a motorbike for her husband to commute to work, and sometimes he can take this bike to operate a motor-taxi whenever he is free from construction.
