Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Pring is from Cambodia. He needs a loan of $250 to purchase seeds, fertilizer and pesticides.
Pring Chhery lives with his family in Siem Reap Province, where he is a local farmer who grows rice and cashew to help earn a living for his family. Pring at this time lacks the funds needed to purchase seeds, fertilizer and pesticides for his farmland.
With a loan from World Vision, Pring will be able to purchase seeds, fertilizer and pesticides to help him cultivate and grow his farmland. Because of the loan, he'll also be able to expand his farmland to include animals and generate more income. With the additional income, Pring will be able to provide for his family's daily needs and pay for repairs to his home.
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.
