Phon's story

Phon S. is a 43-year-old woman, married to Mr. Vin Mao, age 47, and they are living in Battambang Province. Phon S. lives with three school-aged children and earns a living by planting various crops on their own farmland. Phon S. is currently planting a potato crop, which she will harvest and sell when they are mature. She has a life partner in her husband who works in motorcycle repair, earning approximately US$ 3 per day. This couple also takes time to fish around the river from which they are able to make additional income.

Phon S. has hired a neighbor’s boat to support her in her fishing activities. She wants to be the owner of a boat which will allow her to cut out the hiring cost. In order to ensure that is possible, Phon S. would like to request a Kiva loan in the amount of US$ 400 to be used to buy a boat, as well as buying more fishing gear.
