A loan of $1,025 helped a member to purchase fertilizer, rice seed, and pesticides.

Nhan's Group's story

Residing in Kandal province’s Sa Ang district in Cambodia, Nhan is a 53-year-old widow and the mother of seven children, two of whom (a son and a daughter) are still under her responsibility and are currently students. Nhan offers a decent life for her family by working for others as a paid worker and by farming rice. This hard-working single mother earns about 17,000 KHR per day and manages to save approximately 7,000 KHR after meeting her daily expenses.

Nhan is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan had a huge positive impact on her. Nhan was able to better support her family and, the greatest effect of all, educate her children.

The lack of working capital to support her rice-growing business has been a great challenge for her. Thus, Nhan is now leading a group which consists of five female members to take out a loan in the amount of 4,100,000 KHR in total. Nhan, the group representative, will utilize her portion of this loan to support her rice-growing business by purchasing fertilizer, rice seed, and pesticides.

After receiving and efficiently using her requested loan portion, she hopes that her rice field will provide a good-quality crop so that she can sell it at a good price, generating more income for the family. This industrious single mother would love to dedicate all the efforts that she has put into her work to moving her family ahead and, most importantly, further advancing the education of her beloved children.
