A loan of $1,000 helps to buy rice seeds and fertilizer to support her farming business.


Phoeurn's story

Phoeurn is 37 years old, married and is the mother of four children. She is a farmer. Her husband is a worker. She has been farming for 5 years.

Phoeurn has applied for a 4,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner, Chamroeun, to buy rice seeds and fertilizer to support her farming business. Using the loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business as well as support her family's living standards. She hopes that she can grow her business, renovate her home and send her children to school.

Her main challenge is the fluctuation in the price of rice.


This loan is special because:

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