A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fertilizer for farmland.


Khien's Group's story

A 37-year-old widower with two sons who are still in school, Khien is a diligent local farmer who plants rice as the main source of income. His half hectare of rice returns him 18,000 KHR per day as his daily income. He has been in this business for 19 years. Two loan cycles ago was his first loan with VisionFund, Kiva's partner. He has paid back his past loan with success, which has helped him to unload his family's financial burden. Now, he is a leader in a group consisting of two members. He and his co-borrower are applying for 700,000 KHR and 300,000 KHR, respectively. For Khien's loan portion, he is going to buy fertilizer. He hopes this purchase will increase his crop productivity and return him a good profit for his children's sake.
