A loan of $525 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticide.


Rat's story

Rat, a mother of two daughters, is a rural villager from Kampong Cham province. She is 26 years old and plants cassava as a single source of family income. For several years, she has been in this business, and she is able to earn up to 20,000 KHR per day and save up about 7,200 KHR. Rat has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past three cycles and has fully repaid back her loan, which has relieved her family’s burden better than before. Now, she is reapplying for the fourth loan with VisionFund in amount of 2,000,000 KHR. She will use her loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. She hopes to boost her crop yield and minimize her loss due to pests so that she can gain more yield with more profit.
