A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizer, pesticide and to pay for labor fees.

Srey's Group's story

A mother of four schoolchildren and one who is a paid worker from the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Srey is 46 years old and makes a living through farming. She manages one hectare each for growing cassava and rice, whereas her husband works for others for a fee for extra income.

With 10 years of involvement in the current business, she is able to earn 26,300 KHR per day. Including this loan cycle, she is a fifth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner); she has repaid back her loans with success. Her past loans have relieved her family’s burden and improved her livelihood in a good manner.

Now she joins a group of two to apply for a new loan. Her requesting amount is 2,000,000 KHR while her joint member is applying for 1,500,000 KHR. As a leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, pesticide and to pay for labor fees for her cash-crops. She hopes to grow her crops fruitfully and healthily with a high-yield return so that she can make more income in order to build a new bigger house for her family.
