A loan of $375 helped a member to lease a small plot of land for rice farming.

Khuoch's Group's story

Khuoch, 38, lives in a village of the Prey Chhor district of Cambodia and she has two dependent sons still in school. She is a rice farmer who does subsistence farming once per year while her husband is a construction worker. She has been in this business for almost fifteen years.

This is the second loan for Khuoch’s group with Kiva’s field partner, VisionFund. Her group consists of four female members who have been actively working to support their families. Khuoch currently earns about US$6 per day from her business and is able to save less than US$2 each day for the future. As the leader, she will use the entire loan to lease a small plot of land for rice farming. She hopes this loan will enable her to extend her rice farm and lead to a larger income, to make a better living and also keep her children in school.

In this group: Khuoch, Kimthen, Sim, Tharong
