About Lending Project

Support women rice farmers in Cambodia through loans that will impact their livelihoods!

Studies show that when smallholder women farmers have control of their family's income, they spend 90% of it on their families, and their children's health and nutrition improves.

The Cambodian Community Savings Federation (CCSF) understands this well. As 73% of the loans they provide support women, and 53% are for agriculture use. 

Education for their children is often cited as one of the biggest priorities for the families of their beneficiaries. These women want their children to have employment opportunities beyond farming.

The farming businesses created by these women also helps strengthen the local economy through critical job creation. 

Women are important partners in farming. They help provide for the family. These are strong women, in strength and in spirit! They can inspire the next generation as well as other women in the community to work themselves out of the poverty cycle.

This is a group loan for 5 Cambodian women farmers. We are raising USD5,000, to be repaid by June 2018.

Help us empower mothers like Reatrey, a 28 year old who has been a farmer for 8 years, and have a 6 year old son; or Sineth Sao, a 36 year old, providing for 5 kids; or 34-year old Sokrana with 3 kids; or Mrs Hak Phin who is 55 and have farmed for over 20 years! There are many others that work non-stop and deserves this opportunity to build a better life for their families and local communities.
