A loan of $375 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay labor costs for her rice farm.


Korn's Group's story

Korn is 34 years old and a resident of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has five children to care for. Some of her children are in school, some are still young, and one son helps with the family's business. Korn has tackled her family's need for decent food by cultivating rice on two hectares of farmland. Her husband helps in the rice field, and in his spare time he labors for others to earn money. With 10 years' experience in this business, Korn is able to earn about 24,000 KHR (approximately $5.92 USD) per day. However, she has achieved limited rice production so far this season because the water supply is low.

Korn's loan group consists of she and another female member, and both are first-time borrowers with Kiva's partner VisionFund. Korn is the group leader and is applying for a 500,000 KHR loan; her co-member is seeking 1,000,000 KHR. Korn will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for the rice farm and to pay labor costs. She hopes to produce a better yield so she can get a good price and sustain her family's living condition.
