Mrs. Chan has been working in the farming business for a long time in Kompong Cham province. She has good skills planting different kinds of crops on her own land. Mrs. Chan and her husband assist each other in the farm field and make about $3 each day to cover their daily expenses. As she lacks immediate cash to begin to her rice crop, Mrs. Chan would like to request a Kiva loan to buy seeds, fertilizers and insecticides to protect her crops. She will use the remainder of the loan money to purchase some piglets to feed.
