A loan of $800 helped to buy materials for building a decent house.

Phan's story

59 years old, Phan is a married mother of nine children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. Her family lives in a rural area of the Kandal province’s Kandal Stoeng district of Cambodia. Growing rice is the main source of her family’s income. She has been engaged in this business for fifteen years. The current business earns her around 13 USD per day; she manages to save approximately 4 USD each day after daily expenses.

This is Phan's first microloan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of 800 USD. With this loan, she is going to buy materials for building a decent house, such as doors, windows, zincs, etc. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a proper house for living in, so she can pay more attention to generating more income for her family and keeping her children in school.
