A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy pesticides for her farmland and to pay labor fees.

Prel's Group's story

Prel is 38 years old and married. She lives with her husband and three children in a rural area, located in the Dambae district, Cambodia.

To make a living, she has been growing cassava on one hectare of farmland. To supplement the income, her husband also works for others for a fee, to better support his family. Having been in this business for eight years, Prel earns about KHR 46,000 per day to feed the family; she manages to save about KHR 8,700 each day.

This is the first loan for Prel with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, Prel will use part of her loan to buy pesticides for her farmland and will use a portion of it to pay labor fees. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her family’s business and earn more income, to make a better living.
