A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase farmland to grow rice.

Van's story

Van K., age 25, is a mother of two children and has worked as a tailor in her village since 2005. On average, she makes around $1.25 of profit each day. Her husband is a construction worker. Normally, he earns about $5 per day. Besides looking after her two children, she still needs to look after her old mother.

Mrs. Van has requested a loan from Kiva via Credit, the local partner, to purchase a plot of land to grow rice. Currently, the rice price in the market is very good, so if her family can produce more output she will soon improve their standard of living. In the future, she wants all her children to take classes in order to get good jobs. Moreover, if she has enough money she will open a grocery store to double the family's income.
