Mao's Group's story

Mao is a citizen living in Battambang province’s Moung Russey district of Cambodia. She is 30 years old and married with three dependent children. Two of her children are school-aged and the other one is too young for schooling. Mao and her husband have been working as rice farmers on a two-hectare farmland, earning around 22,000KHR daily. Mao has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for two loan cycles already, with which she accomplished relieving the burdens of her family. Now she is leading a loan group of two female members to seek for a loan in the amount of 1,200,000KHR in total. With 1,000,000KHR, which is Mao’s requested loan portion, she will purchase fertilizer and to cover the cost of labor. Mao has a dream of being able to expand her rice-growing business by buying more plots of farmland.
