A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Samphors' Group's story

Samphors is 25 years old, married and has no children. She lives in a village of the Thmor Koul district of Cambodia. She is a farmer while her husband is a paid tractor driver in the district. She has been farming her one-hectare plot of land for four years to earn a living.

Samphors received her first loan in 2010 from Kiva's partner, VisionFund, and she successfully paid it back. She currently earns nearly $5 per day but is able to save less than $2 daily. She is now requesting another loan from VisionFund, along with her group member, for KHR1,200,000 and KHR1,400,000, respectively. As the leader, she wants to use the entire loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland. This loan will enable her to grow her rice successfully and earn more income.
