A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides to protect her rice.

Leang's Group's story

A citizen from a rural village of Kampong Cham province in Cambodia, Leang is 47 years old and has seven children. Currently, two of her kids are in school. To cover her family’s expenses, Leang and her husband farm rice on three hectares of farmland. Leang has been in this business for 23 years and she can earn about 39,600 KHR per day.

Leang has never applied for a loan from VisionFund (Kiva's partner) before. Now, she forms a group of two to apply for their first loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. Leang is going to use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides to protect her rice. She hopes that she can acquire enough capital to do her business and to expand her farmland.
