A loan of $975 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland.


Vorn's Group's story

Vorn, 48, is married and living with her family in a village of the Cheung Prey district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has three children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. For the last twenty-five years, Vorn and her husband have been farming rice on one-hectare farmland as amain source of family’s income. Together, they can earn about 35,000KHR per day from the current business.

Vorn has just joined Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, this cycle. She is leading her group of four to apply for a loan. As a group leader, Vorn is going to use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her rice so as to improve her standard of living.
