A loan of $450 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland.

Sitha's Group's story

A villager from a rural area located in the Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Sitha is 23 years old and married with two children who are still small. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice and growing cassava. They have engaged in this business for three years, and together they can earn about KHR 18,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR 7,000 each day for future needs.

This is the second loan for Sitha with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, while the other member is just with VisionFund this cycle. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Sitha wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor to plow the field. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so as to extend her farmland.
