Ry's Group's story

A peasant from the Dambae district of Kampong Cham Province, Ry is a mother of three children who are still in school. To deal with the family’s hardship, she grows cassava on one hectare of farmland and does rice cropping on a half hectare area. She has been involved in the current business for three years and has been able to earn up to 14,700 KHR per day with 3,600 KHR being saved after deducting other expenses. With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), she is on her fourth cycle. She has wisely used her loans in a good way to sustain her lifestyle and improve her livelihood. Now, she is in a group consisting three female members. She and her co-borrower are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each while the remaining member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. For Ry’s loan portion, she will use it to purchase potash and for plowing plus labor costs. She hopes to increase her income so as she can sustain her living and to renovate her house to a bigger size.
