A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer, seeds and pesticides for her plantation business.


Hok's Group's story

Hok, age 62, is married and lives with her family in a village of the Ek Phnom district. She has three children. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice, planting beans and raising cows for 40 years. The current business earns her family about 46,000 KHR per day but she can manage to save about 13,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Hok has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for five loan cycles while the other member has been with VisionFund for one cycle. Hok completely paid back her previous loans which helped her to relieve her farmland’s burden. Now she is leading her group of two to ask for another loan. As the leader, she wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer, seeds and pesticides for her plantation business. She hopes to increase her family’s income so as to improve their living conditions.
