Yer's Group's story

Yer resides in Siem Reap province’s Srey Snom district, Cambodia. She is 45 years of age and married with two children. Yer is a rice farmer on a three-hectare plot of farm. Having been in this business for ten years, she is able to earn around 10,000KHR per day and save approximately 5,000KHR after canceling out the daily costs of living.

Yer, a first-time borrower, is leading another group member who is also a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) to take out a loan in the amount of 1,000,000KHR each. Yer will utilize her loan portion to buy fertilizer and pay for the cost of labor. After receiving the requested loan, Yer expects a boost in her income.
