A loan of $700 helped to purchase rice to sell and piglets to raise.


Ngin's story

Mrs. Ngin, 38, is a rice cultivator from Kompong Chhnang province. She has spent most of her life doing this business. Ngin has a life partner in her husband who works as a joiner in mobile places. This couple is blessed with three children. Two of her children are garment factory workers in the province, while the other one is a student living under her support.

Ngin always expects to lift her family from poverty by using all of her efforts; however, she is able to generate $1.50 each day. But now she is asking for a loan from Kiva’s funders to purchase rice to sell in the future. With the remaining fund, she’ll buy some piglets to raise in a wooden piggery behind her own house.
