A loan of $325 helped a member to buy two sacks of fertilizer for his field.


Mao's Group's story

Mao is a 52-year-old father of five children. He makes a living from one hectare of farmland for growing paddy rice. In addition to this business, which is his main source of income, he also raises ducks as extra income. He has been with his current businesses for 24 years and earns about 19,000 KHR per day.

Mao's group consists of four members. As the group leader, he has formed this group to seek a new loan with Kiva partner VisionFund; he and two of his fellow group members are first-loan-cycle clients, while the remaining member is a second-loan-cycle client.

Mao will use his portion of the loan to buy two sacks of fertilizer for his field. He hopes that this loan will enable him to grow his crop in a timely way and double his income, so that he can save some money to buy two more hectares of land for expanding his rice-cropping business.

In this group: Mao, Theary, Phorn, Voeurm
