Kheng's story

Kheng is a 57-year-old, married woman with seven children. She and her family live in a wooden house in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. Four of her children are in school and still depend on their parents.

This is the fourth loan Kheng is seeking through Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She successfully used the prior loans to improve her family's living conditions. Now she is seeking another loan with VisionFund, the proceeds of which would be used to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to increase her crop yield and sell the crops for a good price so that she can continue to improve her family's standard of living.
