A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Cheat's Group's story

Cheat is 60 years old and widowed. She lives in a village located in the Sangke district of Cambodia. She has six children, four of whom are dependent and work in the family’s business. Her primary source of income is from the cassava plantation of the eight-hectare farmland. She has been in this business for several years. The main challenge for her family’s business is a drop in the price of cassava.

This is the third loan for Cheat with Kiva’s partner VisionFund, and she has completely paid back the loans with VisionFund. After the loans, she is now able to earn around 12,500 KHR per day for daily expenses. She is leading her group of two members to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, Cheat is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor. She hopes to increase her crop yields and make a better life.
