Ven, age 37, is a humble resident who has been residing in Prey Chor. She has a common-law relationship with her husband, who is operating the same business as rice cultivator, and is blessed with four children: three are single and one is already married. To help the family have a good condition, one of Ven’s daughters shares her income by working for a garment factory in Phnom Penh city.
Ven doesn’t want to keep her valued time passing without any result. She plans to use it making an effort to earn a good income and provide a comfortable living to her children. Consequently, Ven would like to acquire some funds from HKL, one of Kiva's partners, to rent a plantation, on which she will grow potato crops in the coming season. Through using this loan, Ven will be able to further develop her standard of living.
