A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay for plowing the field.


Rem's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in Kampong Cham province’s Ponhea Krek district, Rem is a 34-year-old mother of three children, two of whom are in school. She and her husband are farmers who grow cassava in the local area, and supplement their family’s income by working for others for a fee. Having been in the business for 18 years, Rem and her husband can make a daily income from her current business of about 30,000 KHR and are able to save for future needs about 12,000 KHR per day after expenses.

This is the first loan for Rem with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava planting and use a portion of it to spend on plowing the field. She hopes this loan will enable her to timely grow her cassava so as to sell it for a good price.
