A loan of $1,500 helped to spend on buying fertilizer for her farmland.


Phoern's story

A resident from a rural village of the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Phoern is a 40-year-old mother of three children, two of whom are still dependent on her and still in school. The main sources of the family’s income are from planting cassava and selling bananas by motor in a local area. She has been in this business for fifteen years.

This is the fourth loan for Phoern with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The first loan has helped her relieve her family's burden and support her children’s education. Now she is requesting for a loan of 1,500 USD to buy a new motorbike for her banana selling business and use a portion of it to spend on buying fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so as to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
