A loan of $500 helped to buy more fish for resale.


Houng's story

Houng, who is 40 years old, is a rural villager from Battambang province's Ek Phnom district where crop farming is a popular business in the neighborhood. To make a living, he has been working as a motor-taxi driver while his wife sells fish in the village. Together, they have been engaged in this business for 20 years.

This is the sixth-cycle loan for Houng with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. The past business loans, which he successfully paid back, have helped him to sustain his living conditions as well as his business in a gradual manner. He is now asking for a loan to buy more fish for resale. He hopes to make more income from his current business.
