Son's story

The woman in the photograph is Son S., age 31, who lives in the province of Kompong Thom, which is the best territory for farming. Son S. is married and devoted to her one child, who depends on her care. Her husband earns an income by driving a horse cart around his community.

Son S. grows various crops on her farmland, which she acquired from her grandmother many years ago. She does well in the farming business almost every year. Son S. would like to request a loan from Kiva to buy a plot of her neighbor’s farmland near her house, which is a good location for farming, and to add to her personal savings. She will use this land for farming.
