A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Oun's Group's story

A 39-year-old married woman named Oun is a villager living in a rural village of Thmor Koul district, located in Battambang province, Cambodia. She is blessed with two dependent daughters, both of whom are school-aged. Oun earns a living by farming rice on a two-hectare plot of farmland, while her husband works as a paid worker to add more income to the family. Together, they are able to earn around 34,000KHR per day.

This will be Oun’s second time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The first loan she obtained (and successfully paid back) has helped her to secure food needs for her family. Now she is leading a loan group of two female members to apply for a loan in the amount of 2,000,000KHR in total. Oun, with her requested loan portion, will spend it on buying fertilizer to help keep her rice field in good shape. Oun’s biggest hope is to be able to educate her beloved school-aged children as far as possible so that they will reach their potential as youths in the society.
