A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay labor fees.

Kunthea's Group's story

A resident of a rural area of Mongkul Borey district located in Banteay Meanchey province in Cambodia, Kunthea is 28 years of age and married. She is blessed with one daughter and one son, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

To make a living, Kunthea has been involved in a rice growing business for nearly ten years, which enables her to earn around 24,000 KHR per day and save approximately 11,000 KHR for future needs after offsetting her daily expenses. Kunthea has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for two loan cycles already, with which she succeeded in keeping her beloved kids in school and meeting her family’s needs.

In hopes of smoothly operating her rice field, Kunthea is now leading a group of four female members to apply for a loan in the amount of 3,500,000 KHR total. This group leader, Kunthea, will spend her portion of this loan to buy fertilizer and to pay labor fees. With the help of her requested loan portion, Kunthea believes that her business will provide a good quality crop so that she can earn more income for the family and save up some money to expand her business as well as advance her children's education.
