Maliya's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for land filling to cover the mud around her house.

Maliya's story

Maliya is 25 years old. She lives and works in Kiri Vong, the most populous district in Takeo province. She runs the family business of growing rice and raising some poultry at home. She has been involved in agriculture for many years and earns a normal income of USD $5 per day.

The main challenge that Maliya faces in her agribusiness is the low crop yields caused by insects and the fluctuating prices of her products. She has good skills in her farming business such as analytical and critical thinking skills. Almost anyone can learn how to grow crops or manage livestock, but good analytical skills are the difference between simply going through the motions and thinking issues through and doing tasks well. For example, in the ever-changing landscape of farming (literally and figuratively), an organic farmer will use comprehensive skills to monitor and assess the quality of their land, crops or livestock and to solve problems as they arise.

Because of the shortage of her finance, she has applied for a loan in the amount of KHR 6,000,000 to pay for land filling to cover the mud around her house. With this loan support, she can pay for land filling and can provide her family members with a good environment and fresh air, and protect them from illness while living in good conditions.

In the future, she aims to renovate her old house and purchase more land for agriculture purposes. She sends thanks to all lenders who have contributed their funds to help poor people like her.
