A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland .


Mai's Group's story

Mai, aged 29, is a mother of three children. She lives in a rural village of the Mongkol Borey district. All three of her children are still in school.

Mai is a rice farmer while her husband is a taxi car driver. She has been in this business for almost 10 years. The main challenge for her family's businesses is insufficient water for her farmland and lots of competitors for the taxi business. With her family's businesses, she can earn around 54,000 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses.

This is the first loan for Mai's group with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She is now leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland, and will use a portion of it to spend for plowing and car maintenance. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her family's income so as to set aside some money to afford to buy a plot of farmland.
