Phally's Group's story

Phally is a local farmer residing in Battambang Province’s Ek Phnom district. She is 44 years old and a widow. She has 11 children, three of whom are still in school. Her primary sources of income are from rice cropping and bean farming while the secondary source of her income is catching fish for resale. Having had this business for 22 years, Phally is able to earn up to 19,300 KHR per day. This is the first time that Phally’s group, consisting of three female members, have applied for a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The total amount of her entire group loan is 1,900,000 KHR, of which 500,000 KHR is Phally’s portion. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy rice seed and potash for her farmland. She highly believes that she can make a good yield to sustain her lifestyle.
