A loan of $900 helped a member to purchase fertilizers for her rice field and stock for her store.

Orn's Group's story

A 35-year-old widow, Orn lives with her three children in a rural area of the Krokor district of Pursat province. She earns a living and feeds her small children by farming rice and running a grocery store in the front of her house. She has been in the business for four years.

This is group loan for Orn’s group of four female members. All of them have been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three cycles. Orn has successfully used past loans to relieve her family’s burden and improve her livelihood. Now she can earn about KHR 26,000 per day.

After the successful loans with VisionFund, she is now leading her group to apply for another loan to support their respective businesses. Orn, who is the leader, will use her portion to purchase fertilizers for her rice field and more grocery items for her store. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy two piglets as another business.

With this loan, she hopes to increase her family’s income, so as to set aside some money to afford a decent house for living in.

In this group: Orn, Samnang, Ben, Khim
