A loan of $500 helped to buy a sugarcane squeezing machine and fertilizer.


Phalla's story

Phalla, a local farmer from Takeo Province’s Bati district, Cambodia, is 32 years old and the married father of three schoolchildren. He grows rice and his wife sells sugarcane juice in order to support their children. He has been involved in this business for 20 years. Phalla is applying for his second loan with VisionFund, Kiva's partner. He used his previous loan to expand his business gradually and to support his family. He has completely repaid his first loan already. His new loan request is for 500 US dollars. He will use the loan to buy a sugarcane squeezing machine to support his wife's business and fertilizer for his farmland. He expects to receive a high yield so he can earn more income in order to maintain his children's education.
