Heou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy cow for trading purposes.
Heou is 50 years old, married, and has five children, all of whom are single and still enrolled in school. Heou is a farmer cultivating rice, vegetables, and various kinds of crops, and selling them each harvesting season. She is happy that her spouse supports her in the business in order to obtain an abundant harvest and uplift the family out of poverty. She has been involved in the agricultural business for over 30 years. She has been able to manage her business well because she got these skills from her parents and experience from her farming practices. To make more income, Hoeu’s spouse dedicates himself to a business trading animals. Heou would like to apply for a loan due to financial constraints. She is requesting a loan of KHR 4,000,000 which will be used by her husband to buy cow for trading purposes. She hopes to receive her second loan from Kiva lenders to invest in the business, so that they will be able generate a better income after selling the purchased cow. With the increased income, she can sustain her children's needs and save for their future education.
