A loan of $300 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland.

Phally's Group's story

Phally is a 44-year-old farmer who lives in a rural area of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is married with six children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She has been growing rice on three-hectare area of farmland for fourteen years while her husband works as a paid worker to earn additional income. The current business earns her family approximately 20,000 KHR per day and allows them to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Phally’s group consists of two members who live in the same village and this is the first loan for her with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan of 600,000 KHR each. Phally is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes her crop yield will become more profitable so she can make a better living and keep her child in school.
