A loan of $350 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland, and for labor costs to plow.

Kim's Group's story

Kim, 56, is a widowed mother living with her child in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She makes a living through farming rice. She has been in this business for 27 years, earning about KHR 26,000 per day. She is able to save about KHR 10,000 each day, after expenses, for future needs.

Kim’s group consists of three members who live in the same village, and she is in her first microloan with Kiva partner VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Kim, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She will also use a portion of it to spend on labor costs in plowing the paddy-field. Through this loan, she hopes to get a high yield from her farming business so as to make a better living.
