A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Nger's Group's story

Nger, aged 52, lives in a rural village of the Kampong Cham province’s Prey Chhor district of Cambodia and she has seven children, five of whom are dependent on her. To strive for a living, she has been in rice farming for twenty-seven years whilst her husband also helps in supplementing the family’s income by raising cows and planting cassavas. Together, they are able to earn about 25,000 KHR per day and can manage to save about 7,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. Low crop yield caused by the drought is the main challenge for her business. This is the first microloan for Nger’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Her group consists of six members – all members are female, living in the same village. Now she is leading her group to request a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend for labor costs. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income from the crop yield so as to improve her family’s living standard.
