A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland.


Nat's story

Nat is 36 and lives with her family in a rural village located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She is married with seven children, six of whom are in school--the remaining one is too young for school. Rice farming has been the main source for her family’s income for ten years. To earn more income, her husband also catches fish to sell in the village. The current business earns her family about 26,000 KHR per day and they manage to save about 16,000 KHR each day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Nat with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is requesting for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice healthily and fruitfully so as to sell it for a good price to improve her family’s lifestyle.
