A loan of $900 helped to buy fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides for her cultivated land.


Phorn's story

A resident from a rural village of the Bovel district, Phorn is a 42-year-old mother of six children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

The main sources of her family’s income come from rice farming and cassava planting, which she has been doing for several years. With her current business, she can earn about KHR 20,600 per day to spend on daily expenses.

This is the first loan for Phorn with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is applying for a loan of 3,500,000 KHR to buy fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides for her cultivated land. She will also use a portion of it to spend on labor and land plowing. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income to improve her standards of living.
