A loan of $1,200 helped to buy good arum seedlings and fertilizer for the upcoming planting season.


Cheng's story

A citizen from Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cheng is 47 years old and a mother of five children. The main source of income for her family is from edible arum on two hectares of land. Cheng has been engaged in her current business for 24 years.

With this new loan, she is a second-time borrower with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner). After the original loan that she has fully repaid, she has maintained a good living condition for her family and wants to build a decent house for her children.

Now, she takes a new loan to buy good arum seedlings and fertilizer for the upcoming planting season. Moreover, she will spend a portion of the loan to dig a well and to buy a water pump for her cash-crop. She hopes to gain more income, so that she can keep her children in school.
