A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and grocery items.


Kheun's story

Kheun lives in Ek Phnom District of Battambang Province, Cambodia. She is a 59-year-old married mother blessed with one daughter and three sons. Some of her children are assisting in their mother’s business, which is selling grocery items, whereas the others are working as paid workers in Korea. Kheun earns a living by selling grocery items and has been involved in this business for 30 years. To supplement the income, Kheun’s husband also plants rice and sesame. Kheun has been with VisionFund for five cycles already and has completely paid back all loans. The past loans have helped her manage her business gradually. Now, she needs to buy fertilizer to apply to her farmland as well as purchase her grocery items such as soap, canned food, food ingredients, etc. Therefore, she is applying for USD 1,000.00 with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She hopes to grow her crop timely so she can generate more income to improve her family's standard of living.
