A loan of $525 helped a member to buy a water pump for her cassava crop.

Lon's Group's story

Lon is a 32-year-old married mother of two school children and is originally from the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She is striving to overcome her family's hardships through growing crops (rice and cassava) and raising pigs, which provides her with a return of about 47,900 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day. This income covers various necessary expenses of her family, especially her children’s education.

Lon is new to VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) and has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. As a group leader, she will use her portion of the loan to buy a water pump for her cassava crop. She hopes to grow her cassava successfully and produce high yields so that she can earn a higher income and purchase additional farmland to expand her business activity.
