A loan of $875 helped a member to buy seeds and insecticide, and to pay for labor fees.

Pov's Group's story

A 33-year-old married mother of four (two schoolchildren and two children below the age of schooling), Pov is a local villager residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She can provide for the rest of her family with support from her husband through rice farming and planting some cash-crops, including beans and sesame. She has engaged in this business for 12 years and is able to earn about 24,700 KHR per day.

Now, Pov joins Kiva Field Partner, VisionFund, as a second-time borrower. Her past loans have helped her to better support her living conditions at a good, gradual pace. Now, she is in a group of three and she is a leader. She and one of her fellow members are seeking 1,200,000 KHR each, while the remaining member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR.

Pov is going to spend her portion of the loan on buying seeds and insecticide, and paying for labor fees. She hopes to grow her cash-crop on time and receive more yield with a high selling price so that she can maintain her living conditions and keep her children in school.
