Rath's Group's story

Aged 29, Rath is the married mother of three children. She and her entire family live in Moung Russey district of Cambodia, where rice farming is the common business as the main source of income in her neighborhood as well as for her family. She has managed two hectares of rice-growing farmland for seven years and is able to earn about 27,000 KHR per day.

In her group of three women, Rath is a third-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) whereas her two co-members are first-time borrowers. Rath has completely repaid her previous loans maintaining a good pace in her business. Now, as the group leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer, gasoline, and insecticide for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her current business.
