Kror Nhanh's Group's story

A citizen from a rural area of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Kror Nhanh is a 39-year-old mother of four children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. To support her family’s needs, she and her husband have been involving in farming rice, raising pigs, planting beans and making hashed fish meat and sometimes working for others for a fee, and have been in this type of business for several years. From the current business, Kror Nhanh is able to earn about 45,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 13,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Drought is a big challenge for her paddy business.

Kror Nhanh has been with Kiva partner VisionFund for three loans while the other members have been with VisionFund from two to six loan cycles. She has used her past loans to better support her family in providing sufficient food. She is now leading her group of three to ask for a new loan. Kror Nhanh, who is the group leader, will use one portion of her loan to plow the land for bean planting and the other portion on labor for harvesting rice. She expects this loan will help her business improve progressively, improve her living standards and keep her children in school.
