A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer and seeds for her cultivated land.


Ran's story

Originally from a village of the Phnom Proek district where farming is a common way to make a living, Ran is a 55-year-old mother of one child. Rice farming, corn and cassava planting are the main sources of her family’s income. She and her husband have been farming for 13 years. The current business earns them about US$7 per day and they manage to save about US$5 each day after daily expenses. This is the third microloan for Ran with Kiva’s partner and she completely paid back the past loan. Ran has successfully used the loan to better support her family. Now she is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and seeds for her cultivated land. She hopes to increase her crop production and to sell it for a good price.
