A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide.

Kheoun's Group's story

Kheoun, who is 44 years old, lives in Kampong Cham province in the Ponhea Krek district of Cambodia. She is married and blessed with four children, three of whom are students and still dependent on her. To support her family, she farms rice on a one-hectare plot of land and plants cassava on another one-hectare plot. Each day, she earns approximately 18,000 KHR and manages to save around 10,000 KHR after offsetting her daily expenses. She has taken out and repaid a previous loan from Kiva partner VisionFund. She is now requesting a second loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide to help keep her farmland in good shape. Kheoun leads a five-person loan group whose members want to take out a loan for 3,600,000 KHR. Kheoun will use her portion of this loan, which is for 1,000,000 KHR, to increase her crop yields. She plans to use the additional profit she earns to buy more farmland and begin growing rubber trees.
