A loan of $725 helped a member to buy potash for farmland.


Pheary's Group's story

Pheary, 39, is a rural villager from Pursat Province. She has three children under her care as they are still in school. Rice farming on two hectares of farmland and pig raising are the main sources of income for her family. She has been with this business for 30 years and is able to earn up to 21,000 riels.

Pheary has taken out loans from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) four times including this cycle. She has completely paid back her past loan, which has better supported her living as well as her business – especially her pig-raising business. In need of working capital, she formed a group of three to apply for a new loan with VisionFund. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy potash for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income in order to maintain her lifestyle.
