Phorn's story

Phorn, 52, is a rural villager in Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. Phorn is the breadwinner for his family of six children. Currently, he needs to support only one son who is still in school. He does rice farming as his main business plus fishing for resale and working for others for a fee to supplement his income. From his business, he is able to earn up to 25,000 KHR per day. Phorn is not a new borrower as he has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for three previous loans already. He has fully paid back his last loan and it has enabled him to provide decent daily food for his children. He is applying for a fourth loan in amount of 3,000,000 KHR in order to buy a decent motorbike to support his routine job as a construction paid worker and also support his business. He hopes that this purchase will help him to save his travel time so as he can use his time to look after his child. Moreover, he is able to ship his crop to the market for selling.
