Heang


A loan of $1,025 helped to buy two buffalo to help her maintain her rice fields.


Heang's story

Heang, 32, is from Kompong Speu province and has been working in farming for more than 10 years. This has given her a lot of valuable experience in tending her crops, which mainly consist of rice. Her husband and young children also help her over the planting and harvesting period. With the profits she earns from her farm, she is able to cover some household costs, but it is barely enough to satisfy their needs. Heang would like to reduce some of her operating costs by obtaining funds from Kiva to buy buffalo, so that she does not need to hire them. Thus, she is applying for a loan to buy two animals to help her with the maintenance of her fields. With the loan, she will then be able to save more money and keep providing her family with everything they need.
