Prathna's Group's story

A father of four schoolchildren living in Sangke district of Battambang province, Prathna is 37 years old and a rice farmer on a two hectare area to support his living. He has been involved with this business for seven years. To earn extra income, his wife sells vegetables in the local area. This is the fifth cycle loan for Prathna with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He utilized his past loan wisely to maintain his living status in a proper condition, and he has repaid back all of his past loans.

Now, he is forming a group of three to apply for a new loan. The total loan amount of his requesting group is 3,600,000 KHR. Prathna, whose loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR, will purchase fertilizer and rice seed for his farmland and also pay a plowing fee. Additionally, he will use the loan money to buy more vegetables for his wife to sell. He hopes that he can earn more income and set aside some money to buy an additional plot of farmland to expand his rice cropping business.

In this group: Prathna, Khmao, Sorn
