A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer, and to pay the fee for weeding the land.


Em's Group's story

Em, 49, is a mother of three kids; two are still in school. She is also a local citizen from Kampong Cham province. She works on two, 2-hectare areas of land, one for rice and the other for cassava cultivation. This is the main source of her family's income, whereas working for others for a fee is the supplementary income. Em’s Group is comprised of two female members, who are first-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). As the group leader, Em will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, and to pay the fee for weeding her land. She hopes this purchase will help her to boost her crop output and gain a high yield, so that she can sell the crops for a high price and make more income.
