A loan helped to buy rice seed and fertilizers for her farmland.

Yon's Group's story

Originally from Battambang province, Yon is 51 years old and a widowed mother of four children. Nowadays, only two children still rely on her, as they are still in school. She struggles to make a living via rice-growing and vegetable-planting as her core income-generating business. She has been with this business for ten years and is able to earn about 21,700 KHR per day. This is the fourth loan for Yon with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She feels so confident that she can sustain her living better than before from the past loans, which she has repaid completely. Now, she is in a group of two to apply for a new loan in the amount of 500,000 KHR each. As the leader, Yon will spend her loan portion to buy rice seed and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will support her rice field on time and return her a good profit.
