Touch's story

Residing in the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Touch is 45 and married. She has four children, two of whom still dependent on her since they are students at the local state school.

To support this huge family, she been farming on a half hectare area, which she has been doing for 21 years. To better feed the family, her husband also uses his spare time to work for others for a fee.

Touch has been a member of Kiva’s partner for three cycles, and she has used her past loans successfully to better support her family and keep her children in school.

Now she is applying for a new loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner); Touch will use it to build a new concrete kitchen. She hopes this loan will enable her to build her kitchen on time so she can have a hygenic place to cook clean food for her children and have better health in the family.
