Originally from Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Moy is a 28-year-old father of two dependent children. He struggles to earn a living through raising pigs, growing rice on a half-hectare of land, and growing cassava on one hectare of land. Moy has been in this business since he was 20 years old.
Moy's previous loan was his first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and he has fully repaid it. The past loan supported his income-generating activities seasonably to pay for a transplanting fee for his rice crop and weeding for his cassava plantation. Now, he is seeking a loan of 4,000,000 KHR. He will use this loan to buy pig feed and to pay for weeding and plowing. He hopes that this loan will help him fatten his pig to a healthy condition and support his farm on time for replanting season. This will enable him to triple his income to sustain his living.

The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.
Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
