Rath's Group's story

Rath is a 49-year-old citizen living in Thmor Koul district in Cambodia’s Battambang province. She is married and has five children, two (a daughter and a son) of whom are school-aged children and still under her responsibility. Rath offers a decent life for her family by farming rice on a hectare of farmland. Rath has been involved in her rice-growing business for ten years, earning approximately 16,000 KHR daily and managing to save about 8,000 KHR after canceling out the daily cost of living.

Rath, a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), is leading a group member who, also, is a first-time borrower to request a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. With her requested loan portion, Rath will buy fertilizer to apply to her farmland. Rath expects a boost in her income after receiving her requested loan portion and using it as she plans. This hard-working wife and mother would like to dedicate the efforts that she has put into her work to moving her family ahead and supporting the education of her beloved children.
