A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and household supplies.


Ait's Group's story

A resident of a rural area in Kampong Cham Province’s Tbaung Khmum district in Cambodia, Ait is 35 years of age and married. She has four children, two of whom are dependent on her and attend school. Ait earns her living by farming rice, the business in which she has been involved for six years. Each day, she is able to earn approximately 10,000 KHR and manages to save around 4,000 KHR after meeting her daily living costs. This will be Ait’s third loan from VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The previous loans she received helped her improve her daily livelihood, which made her very happy. Now she is leading a women's group formed with a second-time VisionFund borrower to take out loans of 1,200,000 KHR each. Ait will spend most of her requested portion of the loan on fertilizer for her farmland, and she will also use some of the loan to buy household supplies. Her only hope in the future is to be able to produce plentiful yields of good quality crops, so that she can boost her income and use the income to support her beloved family.
