A loan of $500 helped a member to pay for plowing, to buy potash, rice seed, and to pay for transplanting.


Kok's Group's story

Residing in Battambang Province where rice farming is the popular business in the area, Kok is 40 years old and a widow. She has five children, four of whom are still dependent on her as they are still in school. Like the rest of her neighborhood, she does rice farming. The four hectares of rice growing has returned her about 15,000 Riels (KHR) per day. Including this loan, she is a third-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The past loans have enabled her to support her business on time and have helped her to increase her income and sustain better living conditions than before.

Now, she leads a group of three to apply for a new loan. The total amount of her group loan is 2,000,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is her portion. Kok will spend her loan portion to pay for plowing, to buy potash, rice seed, and to pay for transplanting. She hopes to earn more income, so she can expand her farming to a bigger scale.
