Khen's story

Originally from Thmor Koul district of Battambang Province, Khen is a 38-year-old married woman. She has four kids who are in school. She raises pigs. She has had that job for 10 years, and it supports her family as the main source of income. To better feed the household; her husband also works for others for a fee. From current businesses, they are able to earn about KHR 34,000 per day to meet the family’s needs. Low crop yield resulting from flood is her main challenge for her farming business.

Khen has been with VisionFund for five times and successfully repaid all her loans. The past loans have helped her to support her family with enough food. Now she is applying for a loan of KHR 2,000,000. Khen will use her loan to buy pig feeds for her pig business and use a portion of it to spend on renovating her old house. She hopes to fatten her pig in order to sell it for a good price so as to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
