Yem's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland.
Yem's Group's story
Yem is 59 years old and married. She lives with her family in a rural area located in the Tbaung Khmum district of Tbaung Khmum province. She has three dependent children to take care of. Rice farming and cassava are the only primary sources of her family’s income to make a living and she has been in this business for 20 years. With the current business, she can earn approximately 40,000KHR per day and save about 18,000KHR each day for the future needs. This is the second micro loan for Yem’s group of two with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Yem will use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to increase her current business so as to earn a larger income to make a living better.
