A loan of $725 helped a member to buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more rice.

Yoeurn's Group's story

Yoeurn, a 60-year-old mother of two children who are currently helping with the family’s business, is a rural villager from Kampong Cham Province, where rice farming is one of the common businesses for the villagers. Not different from her neighbors, she and her husband do rice cultivation. This is her only business and brings in about 19,000 KHR per day and allows her to save about 9,000 KHR per day.

With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), Yoeurn is in her seventh loan cycle. She has managed wisely to coordinate her business and household. Moreover, she can buy more household assets for personal consumption.

Now, Yoeurn has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. She will use her loan portion to buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more rice. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions progressively.

In this group: Yoeurn, Sarom
