A loan of $900 helped to pay for the land that she’s rented to grow her potatoes.

Chan's story

Mrs. Chan is a 41-year-old married woman who works on a few plots of farmland to generate income. Her common crops are rice and potatoes. However, presently she plants her potatoes on rented land. She has been in this business for many years in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. Her husband shares his responsibility for the family by working as a construction worker around the province. This couple has been blessed with 4 single children, two of whom are unemployed and still students in local schools.
With her first loan requested from HKL and Kiva, Mrs. Chan will pay for the land that she’s rented to grow her potatoes. In the future, she wishes to own additional farmland to increase her output thereby bettering her living condition.
