Pon's Group's story
A local farmer from Battambang province, named Pon, is in her 53 years of age. She is married and blessed with two children, one of whom is dependent and still in school. To make a living, she and her husband are growing rice and cassava, which she has been involved in for 12 years. Working for others for a fee has been the supplemental business to earn extra income. Due to lacking of working capital for cassava and rice growing, Pon leads a group member to apply for a loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), which will be her fifth cycle. The past loan was paid back successfully and enabled her to sustain family’s living and provide family with comfortable life. Pon, the group leader, will use her loan to support both cassava and rice farming by purchasing seeds, organic pesticide and organic fertilizer. Her hope is to earn more income in order to expand business and build a new decent house for her family to live.
