A loan of $550 helps to buy rice seeds and fertilizer to support his farming business.


Phearak's story

Phearak is 27 years old, married and the father of one child. He is a farmer. His wife is a factory worker. He has been running this business for 2.5 years.

Phearak has applied for a 2,200,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy rice seeds and fertilizer to support his farming business.

Using the loan, he will be able to earn more income to continue his business as well as support his family's living standards.

He hopes that he can grow his business and renovate his home.

His main challenge is the fluctuation in price of rice.


This loan is special because:

It allows farmers to repay when they receive harvest income and gives them access to training.
