A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Chrib's story

Chrib is a local farmer from Pursat Province (Cambodia), where rice farming is a common business in her village. She is 31 years old, a married mother blessed with three children. Two of the children are students; the remaining one is still little.

Chrib has been rice farming for 12 years, with the support from her husband. He also works for others - for a fee - during his spare time from the rice field. She is able to earn up to 15,300 KHR per day from the business. Her main challenge is a shortage of working capital to support her rice farm. Therefore, she is applying for a new loan.

This is her fourth cycle with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She used her past loan, which she has paid back, in a wise manner to upgrade her living conditions. Now she is requesting a 2,000,000 KHR loan; she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She will use a portion of it to build a decent latrine for her family, especially her children. She hopes to receive an increased yield on her farmland, and have a hygenic living condition.
