A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her farmland.


Noun's Group's story

Noun is 36 years old, married and lives in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She has three children, two of whom are dependents and still in school. To support the family, she and her husband have been in the farming business for ten years and complement the income by working as paid workers in the village. The current business earns her family about 16,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

Noun’s group consists of two members who have already been members of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for one cycle. Noun successfully used the past loan to provide sufficient food for her family and education for her children.

She and her group member are now applying for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use a portion of it to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her farmland and another portion of it on labour costs. With this loan, she hopes to expand her current farming business to earn a larger income, in order to improve her family’s living condition and keep their children in school.
