Bouny's story

Bouny, 32 years old, is a brave person, a married woman and highly respected in her local area. She lives with her family and she is engaged in growing rice and raising some poultry at home to cover her family's needs. She has knowledge in growing rice in areas such as land preparation, cultivation and growth of rice, fertilizing, diseases of rice and other agriculture tasks. Her husband is helping her in earning more income by working as she does.

Because of a shortage in her finances, Bouny has applied for a loan in the amount of KHR 2,000,000 to pay for house renovation. This fund can allow her to purchase construction supplies as well pay for labor costs. Having a strong personal home is a source of pride, safety, comfort and dignity in society. Home is a place to spend time with a beloved family. The advantage of new roofs is help with rain and storm protection. Clean ceilings provide comfort for living and waterproofing.

Thanks to the Kiva lenders for their role in the comprehensive development of women like her who want to reduce poverty for their families.
