A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a tractor to help her in the rice field.

Meas's story

Meas, a mother of eight children, is 53 years old. She resides in the Bovel district of Battambang Province, Cambodia. Meas still has one child to take care of who is still in school.

Meas makes a living via rice cultivation and planting oranges, which she has been involved with for 15 years. The current business earns her about 30,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

This is the third loan cycle for Meas with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has used the past loans, which she has fully paid back with success, to keep up the good progress of her business as well as her living conditions.

Now Meas is applying for a loan of 4,000,000 KHR to buy a tractor to help her in the rice field. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield, so as to make a better living and keep her child in school.
