A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and insecticide to increase her output.

Hun's story

Mrs. Hun P., 53, is married and has one child. She and her husband work together on their rice paddy growing rice and some other crops in Prey Chhor district, Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. They started their farming activity in 1980, when they were released and liberated from the Pol Pot regime, a black moment in history for Cambodian citizens, killing nearly three million Cambodian people and completely destroying the whole infrastructure in the entire country.

Hun P. had learned farming skills from her parents since she was 16. After the Pol Pot regime, she moved back to her hometown and started a farming business to support herself. Life was a struggle for her and her husband because they had to restart their farming work, not having many tools and seeds.

At this point, the couple can typically make around US$ 4/day in revenue. With this money, she covers her monthly expenses such as US$ 30 on food, US$ 30 on utilities and US$ 4 on her transportation.

When she learned about CREDIT MFI, a KIVA partnership, Mrs. Hun P. applied for a loan in the amount of $1000 to buy fertilizer and insecticide to increase her output. The loan will give her an opportunity to expand her crops and improve her living conditions.
