A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer for his cultivated land.


Ann's story

Ann is 55 years old and a married father of seven children, one of whom is still dependent and in school. He lives in a rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. The main income of the family is from farming and planting oranges. His wife also raises pigs to earn additional income. Having been involved in this business for 8 years, Ann and his wife are able to earn about 33,000 KHR per day and can save about 10,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Low crop yield in the rice farming business, resulting from insufficient water supply, is still the main challenge.

Ann has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund for two cycles. The past loans, which he fully paid back, have supported his current business. Now he is applying for another loan of 1,500,000 KHR. With this loan, he is going to buy fertilizer for his cultivated land. Ann hopes this loan will help him to grow his rice successfully so as to improve hygienic living conditions for his family.
