A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay for a weeding fee for her farm.

Sreang's Group's story

Sreang, 42, is a local farmer from Kampong Cham province. She has three children, two of whom are still in school.

To tackle her family's daily food consumption and other necessary expenses, she does cassava farming on a three-hectares area as the primary source of income; she has been in this business for 23 years. To earn extra income, she and her husband also works at a construction site.

Never been with VisionFund(Kiva’s partner) before, she and two of her joint members are first-time borrowers. The total amount the group is requesting is 2,700,000 KHR. Sreang will use her loan portion of 1,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer, and to pay for a weeding fee.

She hopes that she can gain a high yield from her cassava and sell it when the price is high, so she can make additional income to build a new house for her kids.
