A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Chet's Group's story

A villager from a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia, Chet is a 41-year-old married mother of eight children, four of whom are dependent on her; some are in school and some are too young for school. She farms rice on four hectares of farmland and complements that income by selling grocery items, while her husband works for others for a fee. Together, they are able to earn about 24,000 Riel (KHR) per day and manage to save almost 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Low crop yield destroyed by insects is the main challenge for her rice-field.

Chet is a first-time borrower with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She is leading her group of two to ask for a loan. With her portion, she is going to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice quickly and fruitfully so as to make a living better and keep her children in school.
