A loan of $550 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice paddy field.

Chreb's Group's story

Chreb is aged 31 years, is married, and the mother of three children, all of whom are still in school. Her family lives in a rural village of the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. She is a rice farmer who grows rice on five hectares farmland and complements her income by selling grocery items. Having been in business for three years, she is able to earn about 40,000 KHR per day and save about 20,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. However, drought is the main challenge for her rice business.

Chreb received the first loan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, a cycle ago, while the other member is in her first cycle with VisionFund. Chreb completely repaid the past loan, which has helped her better support her family’s condition. Now her group is applying for a new loan of 1,200,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice paddy. She hopes this loan will help her to produce a high quality crop yield so as to improve her family’s lifestyle and keep her children in school.
