A loan of $825 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed.

Phy's Group's story

45 and the mother of four children, Phy is from the Sangke district of Battambang province. She grows rice as her primary source of income, and raises cows as supplemental income. She has engaged in this business for 22 years, and earns about 30,000 KHR per day.

For her, the main challenge is the shortage of working capital to support her farmland. To overcome this challenge, she has formed a group of three to apply for a new loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Her past loan has allowed her to relieve her family’s burden, and improve her livelihood.

With this loan, she is seeking 1,200,000 KHR, whereas her fellow group members are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. As a the group leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for re-planting season.

She hopes to increase her crop yield, and make more profit for family.
