A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer, rice seed and insecticide for her rice farm.

Yut's Group's story

Yut is 54 years old and an inhabitant of a rural area of Dambae District (Cambodia). She is the mother of three children, two of whom are her responsibility as they are still in school. As a widow mother, who raises her children alone, she has pulled the family through hardship via her occupation as a school teacher in the community and with her cassava-growing business. She has been involved in this business for 20 years, earning almost 17,000 riels (KHR) per day.

For Yut, it is the third time that she has borrowed with Kiva's partner VisionFund. She has used her loans smartly and with success in keeping up good progress in her business. Also, she has kept her children in school. All of her past loans have been paid back.

Now, in the same group consisting of two female members, she is the leader. She is seeking 1,400,000 KHR and her co-member is requesting 1,200,000 KHR. Yut, the group leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed and insecticide for her rice farm. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her business and earn a larger income so that she can maintain her household's living conditions.
