A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy pesticides for her farmland.


Kat's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in Dambae district where crop farming is a common way to make a living, Kat, 26, is a married mother of three children. The sources of her family’s income are rice farming and planting cassava. She and her husband have been in these businesses for six years. They can earn about 28,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 6,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. This is the sixth loan for Kat with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and she successfully used the past loans to relieve her family’s financial burden and increase family’s income. She is now leading her group to seek for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy pesticides for her farmland and a portion to spend on labor fees. With this loan, Kat hopes to increase her crop yields so as to earn more income to improve her family’s lifestyle.
