A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice farm.


Oeurt's Group's story

Oeurt is 43 years old and is head of her family but needs to struggle in order to raise her children. She has five children, two of whom are still in school and the other three are paid workers. For the past 10 years, she has been rice farming which is her family's main source of income.

Oeurt's first loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) was four loan cycles ago. Now, she, as a fifth-time borrower, leads a group comprising two members including herself. She has used her loans wisely to maintain her household especially to provide proper food for her children and she also repaid the entire loans. As the group leader, Oeurt will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice farm. She believes that this loan will provide a positive outcome as with the ones before so she can upgrade her living conditions.
