Mao's Group's story

Mao is 45 years old and lives in the rural village of Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Cambodia. She is married and has five children, three of whom are still attending school. For the last seven years, Mao has been working as a rice farmer in the local area to support her family. The current business earns her about 12,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s need.
Mao has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two cycles already and she completely repaid the loans while the other member has had five cycles. She has used the past loans wisely and successfully to improve her family’s livelihood. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her rice paddy.
