A loan of $500 helped to purchase some piglets to raise and sell on.

Hou's story

Mrs Hou earns a living by farming together with her husband from Prey Chor district, Cambodia. She is now thirty-five years old and is blessed with two young children. Growing rice crops is a big part of her life.

Mrs Hou grows rice crops twice a year because she gets enough water from the river nearby to sustain this. She typically earns a profit of $2.5 per day from this business. In order to increase her profits for the whole family, she has requested a loan from Kiva, through HKL to purchase some piglets to raise and sell in the future. Mrs Hou wants to improve her living conditions as she works hard and provide her two daughters with great opportunities to join university in Phnom Penh city.
