A loan of $675 helped a member to buy many sacks of pig feed to fatten her pigs.

Meas' Group's story

Mrs. Meas was selected by the other three loan group members as the head of this loan group. She is a villager in Kompong Chhnang province and is a domestic farmer. She also runs a small business selling miscellaneous items. She is the mother of four children, one of whom is married. None of them is employed, so the family depends entirely on Mrs. Meas's daily income and that of her husband.

Mrs. Meas and her husband have spent their lifetime working in the field. They can generate profits of about US $4.25 each day to cover the family’s basic requirements.

To earn some additional money to support the family, Mrs. Meas started raising a few piglets in a cage over three months ago, but they are still very small because they lack sufficient food. For this reason, Mrs. Meas is requesting a loan from Kiva in order to buy several sacks of pig feed to fatten her pigs.

The other borrowers are as follows:

Mrs. Norng is seeking a loan to purchase fertilizers to ensure the successful growth of her crops.

Mrs. Vann, a rice farmer, is looking for a loan to buy pigs for breeding, as well as to purchase fertilizers.

Mrs. Um, a domestic farmer, is requesting a loan to buy several sacks of fertilizers.

In this group: Meas, Norng, Vann, Um
