Mao's story

A resident residing in a rural area of Dambae district in Kampong Cham province in Cambodia, Mao is 26 years of age and married with two dependent children, both of whom are school-aged children. This industrious woman, Mao, supports her family by planting cassava and selling some grocery items in order to complement the income. Mao is a first-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is requesting a KHR 1,000,000 loan. With this first-time requested loan, Mao plans on paying wages to farm laborers and purchasing more grocery items for resale such as sugar, salt, canned items, etc. Mao believes that her family’s livelihood will be improved via the help of this loan and, most importantly, she will be able to offer her children a bright future by advancing their education further.
