A loan of $450 helped a member to buy fertilizers for his farmland.

Ruom's Group's story

Ruom is aged 62 years and is married with three children. He and his family live in a village of the Sangke district of Battambang province. To make a living, he and his wife have been farming rice and planting cassava for several years, earning about 27,900KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

Ruom is in his third loan cycle as a client, while his fellow group member is in her fourth loan cycle with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. He has successfully used the past loans to improve his family’s livelihood. Now he is leading his group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. He will use his portion to buy fertilizers for his farmland. With this loan, he hopes to grow his crops better and produce higher yields in order for him to increase his family’s income.
