Roun's story

Roun is 41 years old, married, and has five children. She lives with her family in the Rokhak Kiri district of Batambong province. Roun is a farmer who owns a few hectares of farm land on which she grows various crops, including rice and potatoes. To supplement the income from the farm, she raises and fattens poultry and sells them to local butchers. She is able to help her husband earn household income so that they are able to provide food, medicines, education, and basic living needs for their children. Roun wants to improve her agribusiness and upgrade her living conditions.

However, the way she does farming is still based on the traditional method. During the rainy season, she has a lot of farm work to complete and she also needs additional capital to pay for her operating expenses. To help her business, she would like to borrow some funds from Kiva lenders to pay for plowing fees, labor costs, and fertilizers to care for her crops. She sends thanks to all lenders for donating their funds to help a poor farmer like her.
