A loan of $625 helped to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Hoy's story

Hoy is aged 45 years old and married. She lives with her husband and five children in a rural area of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. Out of her five children, some are still in school while the others are paid workers helping support the family. She and her husband are rice farmers and they supplement their income by planting sesame and beans. Having been in this business for six years, together they can earn about US$11 per day. Hoy is a second-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and she completely paid back the prior loan, which has helped her improve her family’s living conditions. Now she is requesting a loan of US$ 625 with VisionFund and she is going to use this loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it for labor costs. She hopes to grow her business and raise more crops to make a living better.
