A loan of $275 helped to buy building materials, for building a room below her wooden house.

Ven's story

Ven is 44 years old and lives in a small village of Kompong Speu province. She is married and has four children. Farming is the sole source of her family’s income. Ven’s husband is doing the same type of business along with her on their farmland, which was inherited from her ancestors. However, the income is barely enough to cover their daily expenses. This causes Ven’s husband to get involved in other businesses outside of farming season. Also, some of their children are employed, to uplift their living standard out of poverty.

With the support from this loan, Ven will add to her personal savings in order to buy cement and other building materials, for building a room below her wooden house, where things can be kept for safety. She hopes that Kiva lenders will fund this loan, to better her living situation. For the further improvement of her farming business in the coming years, Ven plans to have a plowing machine, which will make her business more feasible and profitable.
