A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer for farmland.


Mom's Group's story

Mom is a 42-year-old married woman with seven children who lives in a rural area of Moung Russey district, located in Battambang province, Cambodia. Four of her children, two sons and two daughters, are dependent on her and are still in school while the other one is assisting in the family’s business. She struggles to make her daily living via rice cultivation and supplements her family income via working as a paid worker.

Mom and her husband earn their living through farming rice. Each day, she can earn around 24,000 KHR. She is a fifth-cycle client with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The past successful loans, which she has fully paid back, have enabled her to relieve her family's burden and improve their livelihood progressively. She is now leading a group of two members to request a new loan--the other member is a sixth-cycle client with VisionFund. As a group leader, Mom will use her new loan portion to purchase fertilizers for her farmland and a small portion of it to cover her household expenses (food). She highly hopes that her rice field will provide her with a higher crop yields and a higher income.
