A 47-year-old mother of five children from the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Noeurn is a widow who struggles to earn a living through rice cultivation and pig-raising. She has three years of experience in this business, earning about 43,700 KHR per day. A third-time borrower with VisionFund( Kiva’s partner), who has paid back her past loans with success, Noeurn feels so confident that she can improve her living in a good manner and keep her one dependent child in school despite the fact she is a single mother.

Now, she is requesting a loan amount of 4,000,000 KHR. She will use this loan to pay for transplanting fees, plowing fees and potash purchasing. Additionally, she will buy feed to fatten her pig. She hopes to make good progress in both her businesses and earn more income so that she can buy more pigs for raising and a small pig-feed milling machine.
