A loan of $1,025 helped to buy pesticides, fertilizers and seeds for his farmland.


Hen's story

Hen, 44, lives in a rural village of Battambang province’s Bovel district, in Cambodia. He is married and has eight children, five of whom are still attending school. For the last 13 years, he has been growing corn and cassava, earning about 30,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

Hen has been a member of Kiva partner VisionFund for three cycles already and he completely repaid the previous loan, which he used wisely and successfully to improve his family’s livelihood. Now requesting another loan with VisionFund of KHR 4,000,000, he wants to use this loan to buy pesticides, fertilizers and seeds for his farmland. He hopes to get more crops from his corn as well as his cassava growing so as to sell it for a good price to better his family’s condition and keep his children in school.
