A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland.


Chhim's story

Originally from a village of the Tbaung Khmum district where farming is a common way to make a living, Chhim is a 56-year-old widowed mother of three children. Cassava-growing is the main source of family’s income and she has been doing it for twenty years. The current business earns her about US$ 11 per day to meet the family’s needs.

This is the first microloan for Chhim with Kiva’s partner. Now she is applying for a loan with VisionFund to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to increase her cassava production so as to make a better living.
