A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fee.


Touch's Group's story

Touch is 56 years old and originally from Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal Province. She has five children and all of them have their own employment, working on rice fields, clothes tailoring, and working at a construction site. Her main source of family income is from rice farming, which she has been doing for 15 years and from which she is able to earn almost 13,000 KHR per day. Now in a group of three, Touch is a group leader. This is her fifth-time loan with Kiva's partner. Her past loan, which she has paid back, has supported her cash-crops growing on time and returns her a decent income. Now she is applying for 300,000 KHR. She is going to use it to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees. She hopes that this purchase will boost her productivity, so she can make more income and improve her lifestyle.
