A loan of $500 helped buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Malin's story

Malin, aged 24, resides in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has one dependent son who is still under school age. To make a living, she has been engaged in rice farming on two hectares of farmland for three years and is also working as a tailor. Her husband supplements their income by working as a transportation repairer in the local area. The current business earns her approximately 13,000 KHR per day for the family needs. Drought is the main challenge for her rice paddy business.

Malin is a new borrower with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. She is going to utilize this loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy an air pump for her husband’s business. She hopes this loan will help her husband to increase his income and also hopes to grow her rice healthfully and timely so as to make their living better.
