A loan of $375 helped to pay tractor-tilling fees and purchase bean seeds to sow on her land.

Mao's story

Mao is 56 years old and in the business of cultivating seasonal crops on her existing farmland located in the Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She plants and harvests rice, a type of bean, and potatoes based on the season and the market demand. She typically earns approximately KHR 10,200 from this business. Mao has the support from her husband to secure healthy crops. She is the mother of four children – three married children and a single one.
To aid her farming process, Mao needs financial assistance from Kiva lenders in the amount of KHR 1,500,000. In this particular way, she can pay tractor-tilling fees and purchase bean seeds to sow on her land. Moa hopes to make a greater profit which will serve her family’s needs. She is very appreciative to all lenders giving her a constant support.
