A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers, rice seeds and a water pump for her farmland.

Korn's story

A rural villager from the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Korn is 62 and widowed. She has four children. To earn a living, she has been in rice farming and bean planting for almost 40 years and she supplements her income by fishing to support the family. The main challenge for her is low crop yields destroyed by flood. She is able to earn about 66,400 KHR per day to meet family’s need and can manage to save about 22,900 KHR each day.

This is Korn’s first cycle with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of 4,000,000 KHR with VisionFund. She is going to use this loan to buy fertilizers, rice seeds, a water pump for her farmland and also use a portion of it to buy a boat. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her family's income so as to improve her standard of living.
