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

Bo's Group's story

Bo is 37 years old and a citizen of Battambang Province's Moung Russey district. She has seven children in total, but only six of them are still her responsibility. She provides a daily decent food for her household from the income received from her rice cultivation and her pineapple plantation. She is able to earn about 22,500 KHR per day from the current business that she has been doing for 10 years. However, she sometimes receives only a small output, especially when there is a drought. Her prior loan was her first loan and it has been completely repaid already. She has used her first loan with success to maintain her household as well as her business. Now, she, in a group of two, is applying for a new loan as a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). As a group leader, her portion will be used to buy fertilizer for her farm. She expects this purchase will boost her crop production so as she can earn more income.
