A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides, and to pay for the cost of hiring helpers.


Touch's Group's story

Touch, 59 years old, lives in Cambodia in a rural village of Battambang province’s Moung Russey district. She is married and the mother of three children. Touch and her husband have been farming rice and planting sesame tirelessly for the last ten years to support their family. Each day, they are able to earn approximately 49,000 KHR through their hard work. This will be Touch’s third request for a loan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She was very satisfied with her prior two loans because they helped her meet her family’s needs. Now, Touch is leading a group of three people who seek a loan for 4,000,000 KHR. Touch will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides and to pay for the cost of hiring people to help her with her crop. She believes that this loan will give her a good-quality harvest which will allow her to earn more money to support her family.
