Van's story

Van, 52 and a mother of two children, is a farmer from Thmor Kol district of Battambang, where her residential area is. Paddy rice-cropping, which she has been doing for 25 years, is the only source of the family’s income.

Three cycles ago was Van’s first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan has supported her crop at a good pace with a good yield in return; she has completely repaid her past loan, too.

Now, her requested loan amount is 3,600,000 KHR. She will use this loan to buy rice seed, potash, and gasoline to pump water for the farm. She hopes to earn more income so she can upgrade her living condition into a prosperous condition.
