A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizers and seeds for her plantation business.


Ry's Group's story

Ry is a rural villager living in Battabang province’s Ratanak Mondul district. She is 62 years old and married with six children.

Ry has been farming rice and planting corn on three hectares of farmland for 26 years to make a living. She can earn about 30,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day from the current business and manage to save 10,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses for future needs. Drought and insects are the main challenges for operating a farming business.

This is the first microloan for Ry’s group of three with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR for each member, Ry will use her portion to buy fertilizers and seeds for her plantation business. She hopes to increase her plantation production to generate more income to improve her family’s lifestyle.

In this group: Ry, Sinoun, Sophorn
