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

Touch's Group's story

32-year-old, Touch is a married mother of three dependent children who are still in school. Her family’s primary source of income is from a red maize plantation which she has been in for ten years. She also sells cake as another source of income. The main challenge for her is the lack of working capital to support her business.

Touch is a second-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, while this is her group member's first cycle with VisionFund. The first loan with VisionFund, which she successfully paid back, has helped her with a proper living. She now can earn around 12,000 KHR per day from her current business. Touch, who is the leader, wants to use her portion of the requested loan to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland and also use a portion of it to pay for labor. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn a higher income in order for her to be able to afford to extend her farmland, have a decent house, and buy a hand tractor for her farm.
