A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.


Phorn's Group's story

Living in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Phorn is 38 years old and married with five children, one of whom is a dependent and still in school. For the last 10 years, she and her husband have been farming rice on six-hectares of farmland. Together, they can earn about KHR 40,000 per day and can save about KHR 10,000 each day for the future needs. This is the fifth loan for Phorn with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She fully repaid the loans. Now Phorn is leading her group to apply for another loan. As the leader, Phorn is going to use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow rice successfully and make more rice so as to improve her family’s living condition.
