A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer for her rice farmland, and to buy pigs for raising.


Houch's story

Houch, age 64 and a mother who has been blessed with two children, is a resident of Kandal Province. In this area, rice farming is one of the common businesses. Like many of her neighbors, Houch does rice farming, on two hectares of land. She has been in this business for ages -- 40 years!

Including this loan cycle, she is a second-cycle client of VisionFund, Kiva's partner. She has fully paid back her past loan and has managed to use it in a smart way, to upgrade her livelihood. For this cycle, she is going to use part of her loan to buy fertilizer for her rice farmland, and part of it to buy pigs for raising, to earn additional income. She hopes to earn more income from her business and sustain her living.
