A loan of $500 helped to buy pesticides for her farmland and pay labor fees for plowing the field.


Chen's story

A villager from Kampong Cham Province, Chen is 45 years old and lives with her three children. Her two daughters are still in school, and the third is a farmer. To deal with the daily cost of living, she grows cassava on two hectares of farmland. She has had in this business for 25 years, earning about 38,000 KHR per day.

This is Chen's first loan cycle as a client of VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Now she is applying for 2,000,000 KHR to buy pesticides for her farmland and to pay for labor fees for plowing the field. She hopes that she can get high crop yield from her farming, which will help her achieve a better standard of living.
