A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide and to cover the cost of labor.

Heang's Group's story

Residing in a rural village of Moung Russey district located in Battambang province in Cambodia, Heang is a 59-year-old widow. To earn a living, she has been farming rice and selling vegetables and fruits for 10 years, earning approximately 12,000 KHR and saving around 7,000 KHR for future needs after offsetting her daily expenses. This is Heang's fourth time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The past loans have made Heang so satisfied that she was able to improve her living standard so much better. Now she is leading a loan group of four female members to apply for a loan in the amount of 4,800,000 KHR total. With this new requested loan portion, Heang will buy fertilizer and pesticide and cover the cost of labor. The other portion of the loan will be spent on purchasing more vegetables and fruits to sell. This group leader, Heang, hopes that, after receiving the loan and efficiently using it, her rice-growing business will provide a good quality yield so that she can sell her crop at good prices, earning even more income.
