Rum's Group's story

Rum, 52 and a diligent farmer residing in Battambang province of Cambodia, is also a mother of seven children. Currently, she is responsible only for three children as they are still students in local public school in the area. On two hectare each of farmland, she grows paddy rice and sesame in order to support her family; it is the business that she has been with for 10 years.

Two cycles ago was her original loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely paid back her entire loan and it has empowered her to upgrade her lifestyle and be in better shape. Now, she has formed a group of five members including her. The total requested loan amount is 5,300,000 KHR. Rum whose loan portion is 500,000 KHR will use her loan to pay for labor fees, seed and insecticide. She hopes that this purchase will help her to grow her crops on time and return her double profit.
