A loan of $400 helped a member to buy insecticides for protecting her farmland.

Ouch's Group's story

Ouch, 48, lives in a rural village of Kampong Cham Province’s Dambae district, Cambodia. She is married and has four children, three of whom are dependents and still attending school. For the last ten years, Ouch has been planting cassava, while her husband has worked as a construction worker in the local area.

Ouch has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for four cycles already and she has completely repaid her loans. She has used the past loans wisely and successfully to improve her family’s livelihood and support her current business. After the four cycles with VisionFund, she now can earn about 13,000 KHR per day to respond to her family’s needs. She manages to save about about 5,000 KHR each day for her future needs. Now, she is leading her group of two to request another loan. Ouch, the group's leader, will use her portion to buy insecticides for protecting her farmland. She hopes to grow her cassava fruitfully and timely so she can sell it at a good price and improve her standard of living.
