A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay a plowing fee for her rice field.


Mom's Group's story

Mom is 47 years old and a mother of four children, two of whom are dependent on her. She earns her daily income by growing paddy rice on two hectares of farmland. She has been involved in this business for 20 years and is able to earn about 26,000 KHR per day. This is the fifth loan cycle for Mom with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. The loans, which she has successfully paid back, have sustained her current business especially in paying for plowing fees. Now she leads a group of two to request a new loan: Her group member is a newly joined client. She and her group member are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each. Mom will use part of her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and another part of it to pay a plowing fee for her rice field. She expects to earn more income and maintain the standard of living for her household.
