Phorn's story

As one of the breadwinners in the family, Phorn is originally from Kandal Stoeung district of Kandal province. He is 36 years old and has two children.

To secure his daily food, he works at a construction site and grows rice while his wife works at the factory nearby their house. He has been involved in this business for 10 years. This is the fifth-cycle loan for Phorn with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). After the successful loans which he repaid with success, he feels confident that he can improve his family's living condition and support his children's education.

Now, he is applying for a new loan to purchase an additional plot of farmland to expand his rice paddy growing business. He hopes this purchase will help him to grow more rice on a bigger scale and return him double profits. With that, he can support his children's education up to a higher level.
