Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Dern is from Cambodia. She needs a loan of $350 to buy seeds, fertilizer, pesticide and farming tools.
Dern is a farmer who grows rice and vegetables raises animals. She will use a loan from World Vision to buy seeds, pesticide, fertilizer, and farming tools.
Dern does not have the money to provide for her family or buy farming materials. Some of her children have to work in a garment factory in order to send home enough money to sustain the family.
A loan will give Dern the chance she needs to invest in her farming business and increase her profits. She will then be able to buy food for her whole family and pay for her children's education. In the future, she hopes to earn enough income to enlarge her farmland and eventually start a new business.
The Agriculture business sector covers all farming and livestock activities. Some entrepreneurs request loans to help in securing supplies and equipment. Others want to buy more animals to breed or purchase feed and medicines. The majority of our loan clients live in rural communities where agriculture is already understood as a business model. It is for this reason that approximately 50% of our loans are in the agricultural sector.
More than 56,000 people make their home in Cambodia’s Leuk Daek district. Located in Kandal province, improvements are needed in social services, healthcare, schools, and roads. Agriculture is the main source of family income, yet 37 percent of the population experiences food shortages for more than four months of the year.
World Vision established the Leuk Daek Area Development Program in 2000. Accomplishments include helping families establish home gardens, teaching farmers new agricultural methods, immunizing children, constructing calverts, and supporting a canal renovation. These changes have helped the Cambodian people to begin making improvements in their lives.
The World Vision-affiliated VisionFund Cambodia microfinance institution does things like educate entrepreneurs about microfinance, disburse loans, and manage repayments. This gives impoverished rural people a chance to back away from local moneylenders and begin sustainable employment opportunities.
