A loan of $375 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Chea's Group's story

Originally from a village of the Kampong Cham province's Ou Reang Ov district of Cambodia, Chea is a 63-year-old married mother of four children. The main source of her family's income is from rice farming, which she has engaged in for forty-three years in order to overcome her family's financial harship. She is able to earn approximately 15,000 Riel (KHR) per day and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

This is the first loan for Chea's group with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She and her group member are applying for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR and 500,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice more productively so as to improve her standard of living.
