A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides for her rice farmland.


Soeurn's Group's story

Soeurn is 59 years old and has been blessed with five children. She is a rural villager from Battambang province, who grows rice on four hectares of farmland in order to cover the daily cost of living for the entire family. This is the business that she has been with for 30 years.

She has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for seven past loan cycles. Her previous loan has been fully repaid. The loan capital better supported her business, and improved her living standard.

Now she is in a group of two, to apply for a new loan. She and her fellow group member are seeking 1,000,000 KHR, per person. Soeurn, the group leader, is going to use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her current business and maintain her living condition.

In this group: Soeurn, Nakry
