A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her orange-growing business.


Rom's story

Rom is a 62-year-old mother of four children, and a resident of a rural village of the Ek Phnom district. The main source of her family’s income is oranges harvested from trees planted on three hectares of farmland. The family supplements their income by selling corn and bananas in the local area. She has been in this business for thirty years. Lacking capital to buy fertilizers for applying to her farmland is the main challenge for Rom's farming business.

This is the fourth loan for Rom with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She successfully paid back the previous loans, which helped her to better support her family with enough food. Now she is asking for a loan of US$1,000 to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her orange grove business. Rom hopes this loan will enable her to grow her orange crop healthfully and fruitfully, so as to sell it for a good price and improve her living conditions.
