Yoem's Group's story

A local farmer from Kampong Cham province, Yoem is married and strives for a living by farming rice on one hectare of land. She has been involved in the current business for 18 years and is able to earn up to 39,500 KHR per day.

Yoem is in her first loan cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), as are the other two members of Yoem's group. They are seeking to borrow 1,000,000 KHR, each. As the group leader, Yoem will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed, and to pay the fee for plowing the land. She hopes that she will gain triple yield next harvest, and make more income for her family.
