A loan of $1,000 helped to further expand her farming business by harvesting rice and purchasing pesticides.


Ren's story

Ren, 47 years old, lives in Cambodia, in a rural village of Battambang province’s Bavel district. She is married and is the mother of five children.

She and her husband have been farming rice on four-hectares of farmland for the last 14 years to support their family. Each day, they are able to earn approximately 40,000 KHR through their hard work.

This will be Ren’s fifth request for a loan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The prior loans have enabled her to expand her farming business. Now she is applying for another loan, which would be used to harvest rice and to buy pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to harvest her rice timely and fruitfully so as to provide better living conditions for her family.
