A loan of $275 helped a member to pay labor costs of harvesting rice.

Rem's Group's story

Rem, a local farmer from Moung Russey district of Battambang Province, is 50 years old and has five children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. To support her household, she plants rice on six-hectares of farmland and sesame on two-hectares of farmland. Having been in this business for ten years, Rem is able to earn about 28,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs. Lack of working capital is the main challenge for her planting business.

Rem’s group is composed of two members who live in the same village. She had a first microloan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to pay labor costs of harvesting rice. She hopes to get a high crop yield from her paddy as well as her sesame so as to improve her standard of living.
