A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland.


Eng's Group's story

Eng lives in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is a 29-year-old mother of two dependent children, both of whom are too young to attend school. To support the family, she has been cultivating rice on a 4.5-hectare area of farmland for five years. For extra income, her husband uses his spare time to work for others for a fee. The current business earns her around 17,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her rice-paddy.

Eng’s group consists of three female members-- all are the first-time borrowers with Kiva's partner; Eng is leading this group to apply for a loan in amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. She is going to use a portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor fees. She hopes her crop yield will become more profitable so as to improve her standard of living’s condition.
