A loan of $1,725 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Pheap's Group's story

Pheap lives in a rural village in the Krokor district of Pursat Province, Cambodia. She is 30 years old and married with six children, five of whom are still in school in the local area. To support her big family, she has been working as a rice farmer on three-hectare farmland for more than ten years, while her husband is a doctor. The current business earns her about 25,000KHR per day to make a living and she can afford to save 15,000KHR each day after expenses. Low crop yield has been a challenge for her business. This is Pheap’s group loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She and another member is just a member of VisionFund while the other is the second cycled client. Now she is leading her group of three female members to apply for a loan. Pheap will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. With this loan, she hopes to make more healthy rice to increase her family’s income to make a better living and be able to afford to buy some household necessities for the family.
