A loan of $725 helped a member to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and cassava seedlings.


Chea's Group's story

Chea, 52 and married, is a local villager residing in Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. Currently, only three out of five children still rely on her as they are still in school. To tackle the daily food consumption in her household, she grows cassava on three hectares, the business that she has been involved with for 32 years, earning about 11,700 KHR per day. Including this loan, she is a fifth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid back her past loans which have helped her to sustain her living standard and keep her children in school.

For this new loan cycle, she has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. She is the group leader and will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and cassava seedlings. She hopes that she can grow her rice in a timely manner and fruitfully so she can triple her income for her children’s sake.
