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

Kem's Group's story

Kem, 47, is married and has six children; she resides in a rural village located in the Pursat province’s Kror Kor district, Cambodia. Of her six children, three are still dependent and are in school. For the past twenty-five years, Kem has been farming rice and raising pigs as primary sources of her family’s income.

Kem’s Group consists of two members who live in the same village. Kem, who is the leader, will use her portion of this loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She is in her first loan cycle with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. With the fertilizer she will purchase with the loan money, she hopes to increase the yield from her rice paddy, which will improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
