A loan of $425 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Hen's Group's story

Hen is 43 years old and has three children. She is a villager from a rural area located in the Sangke district of Battambang province, Cambodia, where rice farming is the main source of the family’s income.

Hen supplements her income by growing onions and working for others for a fee. She has been in this business for fifteen years. She earns approximately 55,000 KHR per day from the current business, but she can manage to save about 25,000 KHR each day.

Hen has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for five cycles and successfully paid back the loans, while her group co-member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Hen is leading the group to apply for a loan with VisionFund.

As the leader, Hen is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy gasoline for water-pumping. She hopes to increase her income so as to improve her family's living conditions.
