A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers and seedlings and to spend on farmland preparation.

Kimleang's Group's story

Kimleang is a resident of a rural area located in Battambang province. She supports her family by farming rice and growing red corn. Given that her family has so many members, the income generated from her agricultural business is not sufficient to support her family; therefore, during her spare time, she plants corn for others at a fee.

This is Kimleang's fifth loan while her other member is new to VisionFund. As she has a good record with Kiva's field partner, Kimleang was appointed to be the group leader. Kimleang used her portion of her fifth loan to buy fertilizers and seedlings and to spend the remainder on labor fees, as she hires some people to help prepare her farmland. Kimleang hopes this loan will allow her to grow good yield crops, and hence, sell the output for a good price. As a result, she hopes her family will live in better conditions.
