A loan of $675 helped a member to plow her rice field.


Choern's Group's story

A rural villager from the Sangke district of Cambodia, Choern is a 53-year-old widow. She is a hard-working farmer who earns a living by farming rice. To generate more income to better support her family, she also works as a paid worker. She has been in these businesses for ten years. She can earn approximately 20,000 KHR per day through her work to meet her family’s living expenses.

Choern has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for five loan cycles. She successfully paid back her prior loans with VisionFund. The loans from VisionFund have helped her business by enabling her to expand her rice field.

Now she is leading a group seeking a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to plow her rice field. She hopes this loan will enable her to improve her business and to generate more income so as to make for better living conditions.
