A loan of $375 helped a member to pay plowing and water-pumping fees.

Chroeb's Group's story

Chroeb is a 45-year-old mother of seven children, four of whom are still in school.

For the livelihood of her big household, she grows rice and her husband supplements the family’s income by catching fish for resale. For 25 years she has been involved in this business, and she is able to earn up to 10,200 KHR per day.

Chroeb's prior loan was an original loan with Kiva Field Partner, VisionFund. She has smartly used it to sustain her business and progressively improve her living conditions.

Now, she is the leader in a micro-loan group consisting of two female members who are second-time borrowers. Chroeb will use her portion to pay plowing fees plus water-pumping fees, and to purchase fertilizer for her farmland for the upcoming replanting season. She hopes that she will be able to make more income, thereby enabling her four children to pursue their studies until the post-secondary level.
