A loan of $1,025 helped to buy more banana tree for planting.


Bondol's story

Bondol lives in a rural village located in the Sa Ang district’s Kandal province. He is 31 years old and married with two children, both of whom are dependent on him and still in school. To earn a living, he has been planting banana trees for 11 years. His wife also supplements their income by selling rice in the local area. His current business earns his family about US$17 per day and his family manages to save about US$7 each day after daily expenses.

Bondol has been a member of Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for two loan cycles already and he completely paid back the previous loans, which enabled him to better support his current business as well as his children’s education. Now he is applying for a loan to buy more banana trees for planting, and he will use a portion of it to spend on renovating their old house. He hopes this loan will enable him to earn more income from his current business so as to make a better living and keep his children in school.
