A loan of $1,025 helped a member to pay for labor costs of planting cassava.


Nhor's Group's story

A citizen from a rural area located in the Tbaung Khmum district where rice farming is a common way to earn a living, Nhor is aged 62 years and married. He has struggled to feed his family by farming rice and planting cassava. Having been in the business for 15 years, the current business earns him approximately 20,600 KHR per day.

Nhor has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three cycles and he completely paid back the loans. The loans have helped him to support his family’s living conditions. Now he is leading his group to apply for a loan. As the leader, he wants to use his portion to pay for labor costs of planting cassava. He hopes this loan will enable him to get a high yield from his cassava and rice so as to sell it for a good price to improve his lifestyle.
