A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fertilizer for her rice-growing land, and a motorbike for her children's transportation to school.

Kimbeoun's story

Kimbeoun, age 52, is a widow and the mother of two children, one of whom is working while studying. She and her family live in a rural village of Kror Lanh district, located in Cambodia's Siem Reap province. Kimbeoun offers a decent life for her family by working as a rice farmer.

This is Kimbeoun's first time requesting a USD 1,000 loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). Kimbeoun will use one portion of her loan to improve her rice field, by purchasing fertilizer, and use the other portion of it to purchase a motorbike, which will make her children's transportation to school easier. This single mother (Kimbeoun) would love to dedicate all the efforts that she has put into her work, to support her children's education as far as possible. Kimbeoun expects a boost in the income generated by the rice-farming business after receiving the requested loan and using it as she plans.
