A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her rice field.


Oun's Group's story

Oun, 47, lives in a rural village in the Moung Russey District of Battambang Province. She has a big family consisting of seven children living together, some of whom attend school while others support the family's business activities. For her children's sake, Oun has been working on six hectares of farmland for growing paddy rice. She started her business six years ago and now she can earn about 28,000 KHR per day. The main challenges for her are drought and insects that make her crop yields fruitless.
This will be Oun's third loan with Kiva partner VisionFund. She has formed a group of two to request a new loan in order to sustain her business. Her past two loans have made her feel confident in gradually improving her standard of living. Oun is seeking a loan of 1,400,000 KHR and the other group member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. Oun, as the group leader, will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her rice field. She hopes to earn more income to make a better living.
