A loan of $750 helped to buy fishing nets and a boat for his business.


Leang's story

Leang lives in a rural village of the Battambang province's Thmor Koul district, Cambodia. He is 47 years old and has six children, one of whom is dependent on him and still in school. For twenty-five years he has earned a living by catching fish to sell. Sometimes he and his wife work for others for a fee to better support their daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for his fish business.

Leang has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for five loans. He fully repaid the past loans which have relieved his family's financial burden and bought some fishing nets. Now he is applying for a loan with VisionFund for $750. Leang will use his loan to buy new fishing nets and a boat for supporting his current business, and to fix his old boat. He hopes this loan will enable him to increase her business to gain extra income so as to improve his family's living conditions.
