Yeang's story

Yeang, a 57 year-old mother of five children, is a local rice farmer on two hectares in Kampong Cham Province’s Prey Chhor district, where her residential area is. This is the only business that she owns and she has been with it for 35 years.

Yeang has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s parnter) for the past four cycles and her previous loans, which she has fully repaid, have supported her business promptly and returned her a decent income with which to upgrade her lifestyle. Now, she is applying for a new loan in order to purchase rice seed, potash, and insecticide, and to pay for labor costs. She sincerely hopes to increase her income, which would improve her business and her living conditions.
