A loan helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her cassava.

Keat's Group's story

Keat, age 19, is a married mother of one daughter, living in a rural village of the Dambae district, Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. Cassava cultivation is the main source of her family’s income, and her husband supplements the income by cultivating rubber trees. Having engaged in this business for five years, Keat is able to earn about 20,000 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.

Keat’s group is comprised of three members, who are all female and live in the same village. Keat is a client in her first loan cycle with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group of three to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR, each person. Keat will use her portion of the loan funds to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her cassava. With this loan, she hopes to grow her cassava, as well as her rubber trees, healthfully, and she hopes to sell her products for a good price to improve her standard of living.
