A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for a cash crop.

Chamroeurn's Group's story

Chamroeurn, a 49-year-old diligent local farmer from Battambang Province's Moung Russey district, is married and has five children. She has tried hard to deal with her family's hardship via chili-growing while her husband also helps to earns extra income catching fish to sell.

Her original loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) was the previous loan which she has completely paid back. Her past loan has helped her improve her living conditions as well as better support her business. Now, she is able to earn almost 31,000 Riels (KHR) per day. To keep up a good movement of her business, she formed a group of three to seek a new loan. She is a second-time borrower and seeking 500,000 KHR while the other two group members are applying for 700,000 KHR each.

For Chamroeurn as the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for cash crops. Part of her loan will be used to purchase white bean seeds for growing as additional income. She hopes this purchase will increase her yield and return her a good margin.
