A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and pig feed.

Rong's Group's story

Rong is 52 years old and married, and she resides in a rural village of Moung Russey district, in Cambodia’s Battambang province. She is blessed with three children, one of whom (a son) is employed as a paid worker. To earn a living for her family, Rong has been growing rice and raising pigs, tirelessly, for more than 20 years. She earns around 34,000 KHR daily and saves approximately 6,700 KHR, after deducting the daily living expenses.

Now Rong is in need of money to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and pig feed. Thus, Rong is leading a group member, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for one loan cycle already, to take out a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR, each. With the help of her part of the requested loan, this hard-working woman (Rong) believes that she can earn more income for the family and improve the family’s living standard.
