A loan of $600 helped to buy a new cow to replace the old one, and to plant peanuts..


Vân's story

Vân N. has been a farming businesswoman for a long time. She lives in the province of the Kompong Cham province. Since 1979, she has owned and operated her farm to cultivate a rice crop, from which she earns a daily income. Her husband, Thim Than, is a 50-year-old farmer who helps her in the same business, and the daily revenue which he can make is about $1 a day. This is the time for preparing the dry-season rice-field, but her old cow is not able to help with the plowing process. So Vân N. has decided to ask for a Kiva loan to buy a new cow in order to replace the old one. With the remainder of the funds she will plant peanuts.
