A loan of $775 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay plowing fees for her cassava.


Iy's Group's story

A local farmer from Kampong Cham province where cassava is the common business in the area, Iy is 41 years old and has three children. She also grows cassava in her neighborhood. This provides the main source of family income but she also works for pay to get additional income. She has been with this current business for 20 years, earning about 41,000 KHR per day.

She and two other members of her group have applied to VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for a new loan. They are seeking for 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay plowing fees for her cassava. She hopes that she can grow her crop healthily and gain a high yield so that she can sell it and get a high income.
