A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her farmland.


Touch's Group's story

Touch, 54, lives in a rural village of Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is married and has six children; only three of whom are dependent on her and help the family’s business. To support the family, she has been rice farming on seven hectares of farmland and complements the income by growing sesame. Engaging in this business for 14 years, she is able to earn about 50,000KHR per day and save about 20,000KHR. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy business.

Touch has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for one cycle already and she completely repaid the loan. She has used the past loan wisely and successfully to improve her family’s livelihood. She is now requesting a new loan with VisionFund. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy gasoline for pumping water. She hopes this loan will enable her to get a high crop yield to improve her living conditions.
