A loan of $350 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland and the pig's feed.

Yorn's Group's story

Yorn, who is 50 years old, lives with her four children in a rural village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She is a widowed mother.

She has struggled to feed and care for her children by farming rice, raising pigs, planting cassava, and supplementing family’s income by distilling alcohol. She has been in this business for twenty years. She can earn about KHR 40,000 per day to meet the family’s needs. The main challenge for her business is the low price of cassava in the market.

Yorn received her first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, a cycle ago and completely paid back the loan, which has helped her to relieve her family’s burden and improve their livelihood.

Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan with VisionFund. Yorn will use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland and a portion of it to buy the pig's feed.

She hopes to sell the cassava and pig for a good price in the market, so as to improve her standard of living.
