Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Rorm is from Cambodia. She has 8 children. She needs a loan of $200 to purchase seed and fertilizer .
Rorm is a farmer who has a very large family to support. She grows rice, corn, potatoes, and other seasonal crops. At her current level of operation, her business is only marginally sustainable, and she does not have enough food for her family. Her goal is to enlarge and improve her farm.
With a loan from World Vision, Rorm plans to purchase fertilizer and seed. The additional income she will earn from this improvement will be used to provide food for her family and also pay school fees so her eight children can attend school. She plans to continue to invest in her farm by enlarging her farmland and beginning to raise pigs.
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.
Thank you for partnering with World Vision Micro to provide Rorm Chhun with a small loan for her farming business. Rorm used her loan of $200 to purchase seed and fertilizer. She continues to make weekly payments of $4 on time.
