A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a plot of farmland for growing more paddy rice.


Koeng's story

Koeng, 39, is a mother of three dependent kids who are still in school. The rest of her family is residing in the Sangke district of Battambang province, where rice farming is the common business as the main source of income. To deal with the daily food consumption,she solely counts on a single business activity, rice farming, which she has been with for 10 years.

Koeng is a new client for VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is now taking out her first loan, which she will use to buy a plot of farmland for growing more paddy rice. She hopes that she will be able to enlarge her business and gain triple yield, so that she can sustain her lifestyle.
