Botum's Group's story

Botum, 37, is a citizen from a rural area of Battambang province's Thmor Kol district. To support her four children who are currently students, she and her husband has been working as rice farmers. This is Botum's fifth loan from Kiva partner VisionFund. She has succeeded in improving her lifestyle gradually. Now, Botum forms a group of two to seek a new loan; her co-member has just joined VisionFund this cycle. She is asking for 700,000 KHR, while her co-member is applying for 300,000 KHR. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees for her farmland. She hopes to grow her crop in a timely fashion and make more profit in order to improve her living conditions.

In this group: Botum, Sokhon
