Heng's story

Mrs. Heng is 45 years old, married to Mr. Von and has four children. They make a living as farmers, using land which is located near their home. The couple has been doing this since 1980 and one of their children is now making a living as a garment factory worker in Phnom Penh while the other works as an electrician. The other two children are both still in school. The couple earns about $3 a day. They work very hard and are applying for a $400 loan from Kiva to buy fertilizer, which they plan to scatter on their field during the coming rainy season. They will also use a portion of the loan to hire several people to help them plow their land. In the future, the couple would like to open a new business which will help them secure their financial stability.
