A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cassava field.

Toeu's Group's story

Aged 44, Toeu is a farmer from Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has five kids, three of whom still rely on her as one is too young for schooling and two are in school. To cover her family’s expense, she is growing rice and cassava as the main source of income which she has been doing for 24 years. Toeu also earns extra income via her spare time job as a paid worker. This business generates about 25,500 KHR per day.

Now, she leads a group of two in order to request a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) and she is in the second loan cycle. She and her co-borrower are requesting a loan of the same amount: 1,200,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava field. She strong hopes to gain a better yield than before.
