A loan of $175 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice farm.


Salin's Group's story

Salin, a local villager from the Sangke district of Battambang Province, is 22 years old and a mother of a small baby. To provide a daily sustenance for her family, she grows paddy rice. For extra income, her husband drives a tri-motorcycle, called "Tuk Tuk" in the cambodian language, for a fee. She has been in this business for only two years, earning about 39,000 KHR per day and saving about 5,000 KHR per day.

Salin, who had never been with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) before, has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. Both of them are in their first-cycle loan and are seeking the same loan amount of 300,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice farm. She hopes to increase her output and her income, so she can expand her business.

In this group: Salin, Sokhom
