A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Kouy's Group's story

Kouy, 37, lives in a rural village of Kampong Cham province's Ponhea Krek district, Cambodia. She is married and has four children. For the last several years, Kouy has been farming rice and planting cassava to make a living. To complement that income, she works for others for a fee.

Kouy has already taken out and repaid three loans from Kiva's partner VisionFund. She has used the past loans wisely and successfully to improve her family's livelihood. After the three loans with VisionFund, she now can earn about 20,000 Riels (KHR) per day to respond to her family's needs and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day for the future needs.

Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pay for plowing the field. She hopes this loan will enable her to get a high yield from her rice paddy and cassava so as to sell it for a good price to make a better living.
