A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland and fix the ferry boat.

Ki's Group's story

Ki, 52, is a married mother of five children, three daughters and two sons. She resides in a rural village of the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, where crop farming is a common way to earn a living. Like other villagers, cassava planting is the main source of her family's income and she has been farming a 3-hectare plot of farmland for almost thirty-two years.

To better support their living, her husband runs a ferry boat for fees. The main challenge for her business is the lack of working capital to grow her business. With her current business, she can earn around 9,700 KHR per day.

Ki's group consists of five members who are all female. Having completely paid back the first loan, she is now leading her group to apply for a second loan with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for 1,200,000 KHR each.

As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for the farmland and use a portion of it to fix the ferry boat and buy gasoline. She hopes this loan will enable her family to grow the business and make a better living.

In this group: Ki, Moeun, Sokha, Sokheng, Heng
