Seun's story

Originally from Moung Russey district of Battambang Province where rice farming is the common business in the neighborhood, Seun is also a local farmer who overcomes her family's financial burdens by growing rice as the primary source of income. To better support the family, her husband also works as a paid worker for extra income. She has five children, two of whom are students. Engaging in this business for 12 years, she is able to earn up to 46,500 KHR per day.

Seun is a fourth-time borrower with Kiva Field Partner, VisionFund. The prior loan has helped her to sustain her living in a gradual manner. For this cycle, she is seeking 4,000,000 KHR. She is going to use her portion to buy sesame seed and to pay for plowing fees. Moreover, she will use a portion of her loan to buy equipment to support both of her sons' business, running a small place to fix motorbikes in the local area. She hopes to grow her cash crop and support her sons soon.
