A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cassava plantation.


Chunla's Group's story

Living in a wooden house located in Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Chunla is now 29 years old and married. She has three children, all of whom are dependents and still in school. Cassava planting is the main business for Chunla to support her family. Having been in the business for nineteen years, she is able to make daily earnings of 21,000 KHR and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day.

This is the first loan for Chunla with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group of four members to apply for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava planting. Through this loan, she hopes to get a high crop yield from her cassava plantation so as to sell it for a good price to better her standards of living.
