A loan of $525 helped to buy watermelon seeds, fertilizer, and pesticide.


Nem's story

A 33-year-old mother of three children, one of whom remains in school, Nem is a local rice grower and watermelon planter on two hectares of land. To supplement the family income, her husband works for others for a fee. This business, which she has been with for 19 years, earns her about 41,500 KHR per day. This is the fourth loan for Nem with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid her previous loans already and she has managed to keep her children in school and stabilize her business. For now, she is seeking for a new loan of 2,000,000 KHR in order to buy watermelon seeds, fertilizer, and pesticide for her plants. She hopes that she can grow her watermelon on time and get more income so as she can grow rubber trees for latex collection for extra income.
