A loan of $275 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Botom's Group's story

A resident from a rural village of the Thmor Koul district, Botom is a 34-year-old mother of three children, all of whom are dependent on her and still in school. The main sources of the family’s income are from farming rice and working for others for a fee, which she has been doing for eighteen years. With her current business, she can earn about KHR 26,000 per day to spend on daily expenses.

This is the fifth loan for Botom with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loans which have helped her to better support her family and give them enough food. Now she is leading her group to ask for another loan. As the leader, Botom will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend water pumping. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to make a better living.
