A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland and to pay for plowing.


Rey's Group's story

Rey is age 27 and married with one dependent daughter, who is still under school age. Her family lives in a rural area of the Phnom Kror Vanh District of Pursat Province, Cambodia. To make a living, Rey has been farming rice for six years, and her husband also contributes income by working for others for a fee in the local area. The current business earns her approximately 11,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 4,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Insufficient fertilizer to support her rice paddy is the main challenge.

This is the first microloan for Rey’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is now leading her group of two members to apply for a loan. As the leader, Rey will use her portion of the loan for fertilizer for her farmland and labor costs to plow the field. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to make a better living .
