Em's Group's story

Em is 46 years old, married, and a villager residing in a rural village of Moung Russey district in Cambodia’s Battambang province. She is blessed with six children, three (daughters) of whom are dependent on her and currently in school. To make a living, Em and her husband have a rice farming business, with which they have been involved for 10 years. Em has been with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, for a loan cycle already, which enabled her to improve the living condition of her family. Now Em is in need of money to support the family's rice-growing business. Thus, she is leading a group of three female members to apply for a loan in the amount of 3,400,000 KHR in total. Em will use her requested loan portion to support the current business by purchasing fertilizer and paying wages to farm laborers. After receiving and effectively using her requested loan portion, Em highly hopes that the rice field will provide higher and better crop yields so that she can sell them for greater profit. Em is willing to use the anticipated income to move her family ahead and advance her children’s education.
