A loan of $475 helped a member to purchase fertilizer.


Lorn's Group's story

Lorn, 52, is a villager in a rural area of Sangke district located in Battambang province, Cambodia. He is married and has six children. One son is a student and still dependent on him.

Lorn and his wife make their living by farming rice. To add more income to the family, his wife also has a cattle-raising business.

This is Lorn’s third time requesting a loan via VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Lorn is really thankful for the previous loans, which he has already obtained and successfully paid back, because via the help of those loans he has been able to improve his family’s livelihood and send his son to school.

Now he is in need of money to purchase fertilizer to support his farmland. Thus, he is leading a group of two members to apply for a loan in the amount of 900,000 KHR each. After receiving his loan portion, Lorn has high expectations that his business will provide a good-quality crop so that he can sell it for greater income and use the anticipated income to expand his business as well as advance his son’s education.
