A loan of $750 helped to purchase fertilizer and seed for her farm, and motor parts for her husband's motor-repairing business.

Phalla's story

Phalla resides in a rural area of Moung Russey district, located in Battambang province, in Cambodia. Phalla is 24 years of age and married. She also is the mother of a son and a daughter, both of whom are dependent on her and currently in school. To continually support the family, Phalla has been working tirelessly as a rice farmer, on a seven-hectare plot of farmland, for around ten years. Phalla’s husband provides a service, repairing and washing motors, in order to complement the income. This couple is able to earn approximately 38,000 KHR daily.

This is Phalla’s first time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is seeking a 3,000,000 KHR loan to support her rice-growing business, by purchasing fertilizer and rice seed. She will also use this loan to buy spare parts for the motor-repairing business of her husband. After receiving and effectively using the requested loan, Phalla hopes that she and her husband can smoothly run the businesses, generating more income to the family. She wants to use the anticipated profit to improve her family’s lifestyle and further educate her beloved children.
