A loan of $425 helped a member to pay for labor fees in plowing her rice field.


Tong's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Tong is 60 years old and married with ten children, three of whom are dependent on her and work as paid workers in the local area to earn additional income for the family. To support the family, Tong has been planting beans for 33 years, while her husband supplements the income by catching fish. From the current business, Tong can earn about 27,000 KHR per day and can save about 6,000 KHR each day for future needs.

This is Tong's first cycle with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, while the other member has been with VisionFund for three cycles. She is now leading her group of two to apply for a loan. Tong, who is the leader, will use her portion to pay for labor fees in plowing her rice fields. She hopes to get a high yield from the current business so as to improve her standard of living.
