Kheng is a 57-year-old, married woman with seven children. She and her family live in a wooden house in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. Four of her children are in school and still depend on their parents.

The main source of her family’s income is from rice farming and growing cassava. She has been in the farming business for almost twenty years. She explains that she typically earns approximately 30,000 KHR per day.

This is the fourth loan Kheng is seeking through Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She successfully used the prior loans to improve her family's living conditions. Now she is seeking another loan with VisionFund, the proceeds of which would be used to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to increase her crop yield and sell the crops for a good price so that she can continue to improve her family's standard of living.
