A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland and a buffalo to help in the farming.

Yas' Group's story

Yas is a 26-year-old married mother of two children who are dependent on her and too young for school. She lives in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia.

She has made a living through farming rice on a 2.5-hectare area of farmland while her husband works as a paid worker in the local area. The current business earns them about 25,000 KHR and they manage to save almost 20,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses.

Insects are the main challenge for her rice-paddy business.

This is the first loan for Yas’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Yas and her group co-member are requesting a loan of 3,000,000 KHR and 1,500,000 KHR, respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and to buy a buffalo to help her in her rice-paddy field.

She hopes to receive high production and earn more income from the paddy so as to sustain her family's living conditions.
