A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland and to spend on plowing the land.

Him's Group's story

Him is a 44-year-old widow with three children, one daughter and two sons. She earns a living through farming rice on a two-hectare piece of farmland and also planting cassava on two hectares of farmland, which she has been doing for 23 years and 7 years, respectively. With her current business, she is able to earn around 25,000KHR per day to pay for her daily expenses. The main challenge for her family’s business is the drop in cassava price which has affected her earnings.

This is the first loan for Him’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and she will use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. With this loan, she hopes to make more income to make a living better.
