Yan's Group's story

Yan is a villager from Dambae district of Kampong Cham province and is a 64 year old mother of five children. The main source for her to earn income is from cassava farming which she has done for 46 years and it has given her a decent income. She has borrowed from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past two loan cycles. Now, her condition of living is getting better and it has enabled her to sufficiently provide food for her kids. For this cycle, she is leading a group of two for a new loan. She is requesting a loan for 2,000,000 KHR and her joint-borrower is applying for a loan of 1,500,000 KHR. As a leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy insecticide and fertilizer as well as to pay for plowing, labor and harvesting fees. She strongly hopes her cassava will grow healthily and sell for a good price so she can expand her farm.
