A loan of $350 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Yak's Group's story

A villager living in a rural area of Tbaung Khmum district located in Kampong Cham province of Cambodia, Yak is a 32-year-old married woman with two dependent kids. Yak makes her living farming rice, and works for others as a paid worker. Yak’s husband also assists in the rice-farming business, and works an additional job as a motor-taxi driver in order to earn extra income for the family. A first-time borrower, Yak is leading a female group member who also is a first-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, to take out a loan of 1,350,000 KHR in total. As group leader, Yak will use some portion of her loan to buy fertilizer to apply to her farmland, and use the other portion to fix her husband’s motor-taxi. Her hope in the future, after receiving her loan portion and efficiently using it, is to run her business smoothly so that she can generate more income for the family.
