A loan of $550 helped a member to buy rice seed and potash and to pay plowing fees.


Mom's Group's story

Mom, a resident of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, is 47 years old and has three children who currently are farmers. To provide for the family's daily food needs, she and her husband grow paddy rice, a business they have been involved in for a long time.

Mom is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Her original loan improved her standard of living. Now, she is part of a group of three members applying for a new loan. The total amount of the entire group loan is 2,100,000 KHR. Mom, who is the group leader, will use 700,000 KHR to buy rice seed and potash and to pay plowing fees. She hopes this loan will boost her crop productivity and help her improve her profits and her lifestyle.

In this group: Mom, Heang, Chanthy
