A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed and pay the plowing fee.

Malat's Group's story

A resident from Sangke District of Battambang Province, Cambodia, Malat is a married mother of three children. All of her three children--two daughters and one son--are still dependent on her. To provide for the daily basic needs of her family, she has been farming for four years, earning about 20,000 KHR per day. The lack of water is a big challenge for her farmland. Malat has been with Kiva partner VisionFund for four cycles. The previous loans have enabled her to improve her family’s living conditions. Malat is now leading a group of two to request a new loan with VisionFund. She is applying for 1,400,000 KHR, while her fellow group member is seeking 1,000,000 KHR. With her portion of the loan, she is going to buy fertilizers and rice seeds, and save a portion to cover her plowing costs. She hopes to make more income for a better quailty of life for her family.
