A loan of $500 helped to pay the rental fee of the farmland.


Mon's story

A 42-year-old married woman named Mon lives in a rural village of Tbaung Khmum district in Kampong Cham district, Cambodia. She is blessed with five children, two (a daughter and a son) of whom are students.

To offer a decent life for the family, Mon and her husband have been planting cassava for more than 10 years, earning around 45,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day and saving approximately 27,000 KHR after canceling out the daily expenses.

Mon is requesting a 2,000,000 KHR loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the first time. With this first-time requested loan, she will pay the rental fee of a 2-hectare plot of farmland. Mon hopes to earn more income from the cassava-planting business so that she can pay back the loan and improve the family’s lifestyle as well as further advance her school-aged children’s education.
