A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer for her rice field.

Hen's story

Hen is a 35-year-old mother of three children, some of whom are still in school. Her entire family is living in a rural area located in the Bovel district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has two hectares of rice farm on which she is able to produce a rice crop twice per year. She and her husband have been in this business for seven years.

This will be her fourth loan; the previous loans, which she has paid back, enabled her to sustain her business and improve her family's livelihood. Now, she is taking out a new loan with Kiva partner VisionFund for $500. She will use this loan to buy fertilizer for her rice field. She hopes to grow her cash-crop in a timely manner so as to reach a great standard of living.
