A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer and a buffalo for her farm.

Ry's story

Ry, who is 56 years old, lives in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has two children, both of whom are dependent on her; they are still too young for school.

To feed the family, she has been farming rice on three hectares of farmland. The current business earns her about KHR 26,000 per day, and she manages to save around KHR 10,000 each day, after deducting daily expenses. Low crop yield becaause of destruction by insects is the main challenge for her paddy field.

She is applying for a loan of KHR 2,000,000. She will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion to buy a buffalo to help her in her farming business. This is the first microloan for Ry with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund.

With this loan, she hopes to grow her rice healthfully and fruitfully, so as to make a better living and also to fulfill her dream of building a proper house for living in.
