Our NORML chapter is trying to make a difference by making micro-loans to small business owners in countries adversely affected by our drug war. Consider joining our Northern Wisconsin NORML Kiva Lending Team or even forwarding this to a friend.
We have set a goal to reach 25 new members by December 31st, 2011. Won’t you please help us reach that goal? You don’t have to make a loan right away (or at all) but we would appreciate your support as a team member either way. Read more about our goal here.
Oem Puon is a modest villager living in the province of Siem Reap. She owns farmland in the village where she plants rice and vegetable crops to make an income. Oem Puon is a divorced mother who has given birth to five children who are still single. Two of her children help her with the family’s daily expenses by working as a fisherman and a porter in and around Tunle Sap River.
Presently, it is a good time for doing a dry-season rice-field, but Oem Puon has still not planted her crops yet. Therefore, Oem Puon hopes to use her Kiva loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer, and also to assist her son by buying fishing implements to catch more fish.
