A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pigs.

Mi's Group's story

Mi, a 34-year-old local farmer from Kror Kor district of Pursat Province, is one of the breadwinners in a family with three children. Two of her children are still in school while the third is helping in the family business. She can overcome her family's hardship from her income of about 12,000 KHR per day from her rice-cropping business on one hectare of farmland.

Including this cycle, she is a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She has managed her previous loans, which she has completely paid back, in a wise manner, providing sufficient and decent food for her children and living in a hygienic condition.

Now, she is the leader in a group of five members seeking a new loan. The total amount of her entire group loan is 4,400,000 KHR. Mi's loan portion, which is 1,400,000 KHR, will be used to purchase fertilizer for her rice crop and to buy pigs for raising as extra income. She believes that she can improve her crop output, so she can make more profit to support her household, especially her children's education.
