Ourn is from Cambodia. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $100 to purchase fertilizer and pigs.
Ourn Lun is a mother of two, who lives with her family in Banteay Meanchey Province. Ourn works very hard at farming rice and raising pigs, to help provide for her family. Ourn at this time, lacks the funds she needs to continue to maintain her farmland and raise pigs.
With a loan from World Vision, Ourn will be able to purchase more fertilizer for her farmland and pigs to raise. She'll be able to grow healthy crops and pigs to sell for profit within her community. She'll also be able to grow her business and increase her income. With the additional income, Ourn will be able to provide for her family's daily needs, pay for her childrens education and purchase new clothing for her children.
The Agriculture business sector covers all farming and livestock activities. Some entrepreneurs request loans to help in securing supplies and equipment. Others want to buy more animals to breed or purchase feed and medicines. The majority of our loan clients live in rural communities where agriculture is already understood as a business model. It is for this reason that approximately 50% of our loans are in the agricultural sector.
More than 56,000 people make their home in Cambodia’s Leuk Daek district. Located in Kandal province, improvements are needed in social services, healthcare, schools, and roads. Agriculture is the main source of family income, yet 37 percent of the population experiences food shortages for more than four months of the year.
World Vision established the Leuk Daek Area Development Program in 2000. Accomplishments include helping families establish home gardens, teaching farmers new agricultural methods, immunizing children, constructing calverts, and supporting a canal renovation. These changes have helped the Cambodian people to begin making improvements in their lives.
The World Vision-affiliated VisionFund Cambodia microfinance institution does things like educate entrepreneurs about microfinance, disburse loans, and manage repayments. This gives impoverished rural people a chance to back away from local moneylenders and begin sustainable employment opportunities.
Thank you for empowering Ourn Lun with the opportunity to expand her farming and livestock business. With the $100 loan Ourn was able to purchase fertilizer and more pigs to raise.
Ourn is on her way to repaying her small business loan, as she makes weekly payments of $2. Thanks to the profits she has earned, Ourn can afford to purchase food for her family, purchase fertilizer and expand her current business.
Ourn hopes to provide her children with a brighter future and her two children continue to study in school.

Thank you for supporting Ourn Lun's farming and livestock business through World Vision Micro. Ourn invested her small business loan of $100 to purchase fertilizer for her crops and more pigs to raise and sell for profit. She has made weekly payments of $2 and has now fully repaid her loan.
With the profits from her business, Ourn decided to purchase food for the animals and expand her current business. Ourn's goal for the future is to earn enough so that she can expand her current business and purchase more livestock.
Ourn's two children remain in school. Because of your donation, Ourn is able to provide a better future for her children.
