Lyheang's story

Lyheang is a 38-year-old widower and a father with one child. He lives in a rural area of the Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. As a widower, he has struggled to make a living through growing cabbages for ten years and also complementing the income by buying and selling cows. The current business earns him around US$11 per day and allows him to save about US$4 each day after deducting daily expenses. Lyheang is a first cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. He is applying for a loan with VisionFund of US$500. With this loan, he is going to buy more cows to resell. He hopes this loan will enable him to increase his income from his business so as to improve his standard of living.
