A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to have the field prepared for planting rice.

Mao's Group's story

Mao is aged 30 years and married. She lives with her husband and one daughter, in a rural area located in the Moung Russey district, Cambodia. She is a rice farmer on two hectares of farmland. She has been a rice farmer for ten years, while her husband catches fish. The current business earns her family about 22,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 14,000 KHR each day after covering the cost of living.

This is the first loan for Mao with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The other group member has been with VisionFund for one previous loan cycle. Now Mao is leading her group to apply for a new loan. Mao will use her portion of the loan funds to buy fertilizer for her farmland and to have the field plowed. She hopes this loan will enable her family to earn more income from her rice paddy business.
