A loan of $700 helped to buy fertilizers for his farmland.

Ont's story

Ont, 52, lives in a rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. He is married with four children, one of whom is dependent and still in school. The family’s main source of income is from rice farming on their eight-hectare farmland. His wife also supplements the income by selling grocery items. They have been in this business for twenty-five years.

This is the first microloan for Ont with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. He is now requesting a loan of US $700. With this loan, he is going to buy fertilizers for his farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor to plow the field. He hopes to make more rice so as to sell it for a good price, and to make a better living and keep his child in school.
