A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.

Keng's Group's story

Keng, 53, lives in one of the remote areas of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province. She has five children, two of whom are dependents and still in school. To support the family, she and her husband have been farming as their main source of income. To better feed the family, they also raise pigs and make palm juice. They have been with this business for thirty years, and Keng is able to save only 10,000KHR per day for the family needs.
This is the first loan for Keng with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is now leading her group of three to request a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on renovating her old house. She hopes this loan will enable her to get a high yield from her paddy-field and also hopes to get a proper house for living.
