A loan of $875 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Roern's Group's story

Roern, 62, is a rural villager from Thmor Koul district, Battambang Province. She is the mother of eight children. To provide a decent daily living for her family, she and her husband manage three hectares of land area for growing rice. It is the business in which she has engaged for 15 years, and Roern is able to earn up to 24,600 KHR per day.

Six loans ago was Roern's original loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has successfully used her loans to upgrade her living standard in a good manner. Additionally, she can set aside some money for future needs.

Now, she is in need of working capital in order to take care of her farmland. So she formed a group of three, in order to apply for a new loan with VisionFund. She and one of her fellow group members are seeking to borrow 1,200,000 KHR each, while the remaining member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. Roern, the group leader, is going to use her portion of the loan funds to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to boost her crop yield and get back a good profit for her family.
