A loan of $1,250 helped to buy a decent motor for commuting for her family.

Rot's story

Rot is from a rural village in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is a 44-year-old widowed mother of five children, three of whom are dependents and help the family’s business.

For seven years, cassava planting and rice farming have been the main sources of income for her family. To earn additional income, Rot also buys and sells cassava in the local area. From the current business, she can earn about 83,000 KHR per day. She manages to save about 20,000 KHR each day after the daily expenses.

This is Rot's seventh loan with Kiva partner VisionFund. She fully paid back the past loans which have helped her obtain enough food for the family's needs. Now she is applying for another loan with VisionFund in the amount of US$1,250. With this loan, she is going to buy a decent motor for commuting for her family and transporting her cassava and rice from the field. Rot hopes to be able to deliver her products to customers in a timely fashion in order to earn a larger income for the family.
