A loan of $425 helped to pay rice crop reaping fee and to buy fertilizer.


Koeurn's story

Koeurn is a local farmer who grows rice as the main income source for her family. She is a 30-year-old mother with three children, one attending school and the others too young for school. The rest of her family is living in Moung Russey district of Battambang province. Her business, which she has been engaged in for 10 years, earns her about 33,000 KHR per day. For her, the main business challenge is the lack of working capital to support her rice farm. Therefore, she is seeking a new loan from Kiva partner VisionFund to overcome her challenge. She repaid her first loan already and feels empowered that she can promote a higher standard living for her family, especially her children. In this second loan with VisionFund, she is seeking 1,600,000 KHR to pay the reaping fee on her three hectare farm and to buy five sacks of fertilizer to reserve for the upcoming planting season. She hopes to gain more crop output and sell at a high price so as she can improve her lifestyle.
