A loan of $575 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticide.

Soeur's Group's story

Soeur, age 40, is a resident from the Siem Reap Province's Srey Snom District. Her family consists of seven members, including her five children who are still in school. For this big household, she has struggled with her husband in cultivating rice on two hectares of farmland. She has been involved in this business for 10 years, and it earns her about 10,000 KHR per day. There are three members in the same group, and all of them are first-cycle borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She and one of her co-borrowers are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each whereas the remaining borrower is applying for 300,000 KHR. For Soeur's loan portion, she is going to buy fertilizer and insecticide. She hopes this purchase will minimize the loss of her crop yield due to pests and will provide her with a good yield and a high profit so that she can keep all of her children in school.
