A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy seeds and pesticides for her farmland.


Ann's Group's story

Ann resides in a rural village in the Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang province. She is a 49-year-old mother of eight children. The main source of the family’s income is from planting corn. Sometimes they work for others for a fee. Ann has been in this business for 12 years. Together, she and her husband can earn about 20,000 Cambodian riel (KHR) per day and manage to save about 8,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. This is Ann’s eighth loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. The two other members of her group have been with VisionFund for three to eight cycles. Ann’s seventh loan helped relieve her family's burden. Now, she is leading her group in a request for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. Ann will buy seeds and pesticides for her farmland and use a portion of the loan for plowing the field. She hopes to get a high crop from her corn planting so as to make a better living.
