A loan of $300 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her cultivated land.

Hou's Group's story

Hou, a 46-year-old married mother, lives in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has three children to take care of. To make a living, she has been farming rice for several years, while her husband also earns extra income by making palm juice in the local area.

The current business earns her family approximately 23,000 KHR per day and they manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Lack of working capital to buy fertilizer for covering her farmland is the main challenge for her business.

Hou’s group consists of three members who are in their first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is leading her group to request a loan. As the leader, Hou will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her cultivated land.

She hopes this loan will help her to grow her rice successfully so as to improve hygienic living conditions for her family.
