Nary's Group's story

Nary is a resident of Dambe district, located in Kampong Cham province. She is a 46-year-old mother with six children, two of whom are in school.

The family's primary source of income comes from a cassava plantation. Nary has been planting cassava to earn a living for her family for about 28 years. The average income for the family is only 33,300 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day.

Nary has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for the past two cycles and has successfully repaid her past loan. The loan allowed her to uplift her living condition at a gradual pace.

Now, she leads a group of five borrowers in a request for a loan of 3,400,000 KHR, from which her portion is 1,000,000 KHR. She plans to use the loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide and also to pay for labour fees for plowing the land and collecting the yield.

She hopes that she will be able to have enough money to expand the plantation.
