Touch, aged 35, is a local villager from Ponhea Krek district in Kampong Cham province. She is the mother of two children; one is in school and the other one is still small. To support the family, she grows rice and cassava as the main of income, and works as a paid worker for additional income. She has been with these businesses for 10 years and she earns about 19,000 KHR per day.

Including this loan, Touch is a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The successful repayment of her past loans has enabled her to support improvements to her living conditions at a gradual pace. Now, she is teaming up in a group of four to receive a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy seeds and fertilizer for her paddy rice and cassava farm. She hopes to earn double her income from before.
