Phally's story

Farming is the most popular business activity for Cambodian people who live in the countryside, as well as for many people in some Asian countries. Phally, aged 30, is a married woman who is responsible for one child, in Kiri Vong district, Takeo province. She has many years of experience in farming, so she is confident she can maintain healthy crops and improve her farming practices from year to year. Phally is able to grow and harvest rice crops twice a year, and she usually generates a good income to satisfy her living needs. She manages her income wisely and mainly uses it for her child’s education. She will educate her child up to a university degree, and this is her priority in life. Phally’s husband always assists her in growing the crops and also goes fishing to encourage her in a fish sales business.

As their kitchen is getting old, it needs to be repaired. For many months, Phally and her family have used the uncomfortable kitchen due to the lack of funds to fix it. In order to solve this problem, Phally is asking for a loan from Kiva lenders to purchase planks of wood to replace a wall and other broken parts. With the new kitchen, her family will have a sanitary place for cooking and it will protect her family members from illness. Through her hardships and effort, Phally hopes to attain a better quality of life someday.
