Neang's Group's story

Originally from Prey Chor district of Kampong Cham province, Neang is married and 46 years old. She has four children (only one daughter) all of whom still count on her. To help her family survive she grows rice with the support from her husband on one hectare of farmland. It is the business that she has been in for 15 years and it has enabled her to earn 16,600 KHR per day.

This is the third loan for Neang with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Her past loans which she has fully paid back has supported her business and improved her lifestyle gradually. Moreover, she was able to buy household supplies such as a table, a closet, and a television for her family. Now, she is in a group of two and a group leader. She and her co-borrower are seeking for 1,000,000 KHR each. For Neang, she is going to use her loan to buy fertilizer and rice seeds. She will also use a portion of it to pay for plowing and transplanting fee, and pumping the water for her rice farm. She hopes to grow her paddy rice on time so that she can gain double yield and make more income.
