A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more glutinous rice to make "Ambuk" for sale.

El's Group's story

These are two members who joined together as a group to ask for a loan from Kiva’s funders. Mrs. El, 43, is the leader of this group and is in the business of cultivating rice crops. She is living with eight single children in Kompong Chhnang province. Some of her children are now working in different careers.

During this month of November, Mrs. El, like most Cambodian farmers, is ready to harvest her rice crop from the fields. Mrs. El is taking out this loan from HKL, one of Kiva’s partners, to buy more glutinous rice to make "Ambuk" (pounded glutinous rice that can be eaten directly with ripe bananas or coconut milk) for sale. With the increase in income she’ll earn, she wants to save to expand her farming business in the future.

In this group: El, Chan
