A loan of $325 helped to buy fertilizers for his farmland and to renovate his home.

Ratha's story

Ratha is 24 years old and lives in a rural area located in the Kandal Steong district of Kandal province. He has been farming rice and growing vegetables for five years. He is able to earn about US $4 per day from his current business. He sometimes works as a paid construction worker in the local area to earn additional income for the family.

This is the first microloan for Ratha with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. He is requesting a loan of 1,200,000 KHR to buy fertilizers for his farmland. He will also use a portion of the loan to renovate his old house. He hopes this loan will enable him to get a high yield from his rice paddy field.
