Lis' Group's story

A young mother of a little son, Lis is 20 years old. She is from Bovel district of Battambang province, and grows corn in the local area on one hectare of farmland. To supplement the family’s income, her husband also works for others for a fee when he has free time from farming. She has been involved in the agriculture sector for three years, and earns about 28,600 KHR per day.

Lis has just joined VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for this cycle. She is forming a group of two to apply for a new loan. She is seeking a loan of 1,500,000 KHR and her co-borrower is applying for 1,000,000 KHR.

As the group leader, she will spend her loan portion on plowing costs, rice seeds, potash, and purchasing insecticides. She hopes that she can grow her crops healthily and make a good income so that she can send her son to school when he is the age for schooling.
