A loan of $500 helped to buy a cow for her farming business.

Khim's story

A widow living in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Khim is aged 53 years and a mother of two children. One child is dependent and still in school whilst the other is employed and earning a living. For the last thirty years, Khim has been working as a rice farmer to support her family.

Khim has been a member of VisionFund for six cycles already and she completely paid back the loans. With the loans from VisionFund, she has been able to better support her business and family’s living condition. Now she can earn about US$10 per day from her current business and save about US$5 each day for future needs. Now requesting another loan of US$500, she wants to use this loan to buy a cow for her farming business, and also to use a portion of it to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a cow as labor in helping her farming business, and also hopes to increase rice yields so as to improve her standard of living.
