A loan of $1,250 helped a member to hire workers to help on a farm.


Bunly's Group's story

Bunly is a 51-year-old widow who lives in a rural village in Kandal province’s Kandal Stoeng district, where she earns a living by farming rice. She has been in this line of work for more than 25 years and earns around 25,000 KHR per day. Of this sum, she is able to save 13,000 KHR daily after paying her expenses. Bunly has completed 11 loan cycles with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and has successfully used these loans to pay her daily expenses and improve her lifestyle. She now leads a five-person loan group whose members are requesting 1,000,000 KHR each. She plans to use her portion of the loan to pay for the cost of hiring workers to help on her farm. Bunly hopes to use the additional income made possible by this loan to improve her family's standard of living.
