A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Neng's Group's story

Neng is 39 years old and the mother of three children, one daughter and two sons, all of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She lives in the rural area of the Ponhea krek district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia,

She and her husband make a living through farming rice on one hectare of farmland and planting cassava on two hectares of farmland. They supplement the family’s income by selling vegetables, such as cucumbers, cabbages, eggplants, and mandrel. They are able to earn about KHR 60,000 per day to meet the family’s needs from these businesses, which they have been with for several years. The main challenge is lack of capital for the current business.

Neang’s group consists of two members who live in the same village. This is the group's first microloan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund.

Neang, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income, so she can buy a decent motorbike for commuting as well as to help her family’s business.
