Rat's Group's story

Rat is 48 years old and lives in the EK Phnom district of Battambang province. She is a mother of six children. To feed the entire household, she raises chickens as her main source of income while her husband works at construction site. Rat is not a first time borrower with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has managed her past loan in a smart way, being able to support a decent lifestyle for her family, and her business is in good shape. This group consists of two females, with Rat being the group leader. The total amount of her requested loan is 1,800,000 KHR, with 1,400,000 KHR being her portion. Rat will use her loan portion to buy more chickens to raise. She hopes to earn more income for her family so she can improve their living standards even further.
