A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and pay for labor.


Loem's story

Loem is 51 years old and married. He has five children, two of whom are under his care and they work at the family's business.

He and his wife have been planting maize and rice as the family's main source of income for more than ten years. The main challenges for his family's business are flood and drought.

Loem has received three loans from VisionFund and he successfully paid back all the loans. The past loans have helped his family make a living better and afford sufficient food. With his current business, he is able to earn 20,000 KHR per day.

With a good business, he is applying for a fourth loan with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. He will use this loan to buy fertilizer for his farmland and use a portion of it to spend for labor. He hopes this loan will enable him to increase family's income so he can afford to extend the farmland and have a decent house for living in.
