A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more utensils and equipment and expand her business.


Phat's story

Phat Muntha, 29, is married and lives in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She has just started a business in 2007, cooking Khmer food and rice to sell to the numerous factory workers in her community. Her husband is a motor-taxi driver, transporting passengers to different locations.



On average this couple can typically make $10/day in income, which enables them to cover their entire family's expenses and their kid’s tuition fee.



Phat Muntha would like to request a loan from KIVA to expand her food stand, making it bigger so that there is enough room for her customers. With any remainder of the loan she will buy more utensils and equipment.
