Chinda is 29 years of age and a hardworking farmer from a peaceful village in Kampong Cham province. She is married and is responsible for raising three children who are living depending on her income. Chinda has managed one and a half hectare of farmland, which is located not too far from her home, for growing rice. Having been in this type of business for over ten years, she has gained valuable experience to improve her farming practices and is able to earn KHR 20,000 per day now.
Chinda is asking for this loan which will be used to buy farming inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides. She hopes Kiva lenders will not reject her loan and is very thankful for their support. In the future, she is aiming to develop her farming business and improve her home to ensure better living conditions for the family.
