Oun's story

A mother of eight children, one of whom is in school, Oun is a villager from the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, where cassava is one of the well-known products in the area. Besides farming cassava on one and a half hectare, which is her primary source of income, she grows rice on another half-hectare area. She struggles to make a living as a widow who currently is in her early 50s. She is able to earn up to 28,600 Cambodian riel (KHR) per day. With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), she is the second microloan borrower who has repaid her original loan with success and improved her lifestyle from what it was. Now, she is seeking a new loan in order to buy potash for her farmland and pay a fee for plowing, to be ready for planting season. She hopes that she can increase her income for her family.
