A loan of $575 helped a member to buy potash and insecticide for her farmland.


Mao's Group's story

Originally from Battambang Province, Mao is 45 years old and married.

The common business among her neighbors in her residential area is rice farming. She also manages a five-hectare area to grow rainy season rice as the main source of income. To better feed the family, her husband also works for others for a fee for extra income. The five years involvement in the current business has returned her about 26,100 KHR per day.

This is the second loan for Mao with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) while her co-borrower is the first-time client. She has used her first loan wisely to uplift her living condition at a good pace. Now, she is seeking 1,200,000 KHR while her co-member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR.

As the group leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash and insecticide for her farmland. She hopes that she can earn a higher yield than before.
