A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Lang's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia, Lang is 28 years old, and she is a married mother of three sons.

She makes a living through 1.5 hectares of rice farmland. To add more income, she also raises pigs at home, while her husband works as a paid worker. From the current business that she has been with for several years, she is able to earn about 22,000 KHR per day and save about 16,000 KHR each day for future needs. However, the main challenge for her rice is drought, which lowers her yield.

Lang received her first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, three cycles ago, while her other group member has been with VisionFund for one cycle. The past loans have helped her better support her current business.

She is now leading her group of two to request a loan with VisionFund. With her portion, she is going to buy fertilizers for her farmland and build on her savings to renovate her house. She hopes to earn more income from the crop yield and also enable her to have a decent house for living in so as to improve her family’s lifestyle.
