Chea, 53, lives with her life companion and their three dependent children; they live in their own house in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham. She works in agriculture growing rice and vegetables and the profits obtained cover some of her household expenses. She has been in the business for more than 30 years.
Chea completely paid back her past loan from Kiva and she’s asking for this loan to buy farming supplies such as seeds and fertilizer, among other things for growing vegetables well. She hopes that she can get better crops and give her children their basic needs.
