A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizers for her farmland and to pay for labor.

Ny's story

A rural villager from the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Ny is a 53-year-old mother of four children, all of whom are dependent and still in school. Cassava planting on 1.5 hectares has been the family's only source of income for almost thirty years. The main challenge for her business is the low price received for the crop yield. The current business earns her about KHR 29,200 per day.

Ny has been with Kiva’s partner VisionFund for three cycles, and she successfully paid back the previous loans, which have helped her better support her family and keep her children in school. Now she is applying for a loan of KHR 2,000,000 through VisionFund. Ny will use this new loan to buy fertilizers and to pay for labor. She hopes to sell her cassava at a good price so she can provide her family with better living conditions.
