A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cassava plantation.

Naysi's Group's story

Naysi, age 45, is a farmer living in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. Naysi has five children, three of whom are students and still under her responsibility. To provide for her household, she has been engaged in growing cassava on two-hectares of farmland for twenty-five years. The current business earns her about 24,000KHR per day and she manages to save about 10,000KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

Naysi’s group is requesting their first microloan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She and her fellow group member are applying for a loan of 1,000,000 KR each. As the group leader, she is going to utilize her portion to buy fertilizer for her plantation and use a portion of it to spend on labor costs. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her cassava fruitfully and healthfully so as to sell it for a high price in order to make a living better in her family.
