A loan of $500 helped a member to buy herbicide for her cassava farm, and potash for her farmland.

Pov's Group's story

Originally from Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Pov is in her late 40s and has three children. To overcome her financial burden, she does cassava cultivation on a half hectare area as her main income and plants rice on one hectare for supplementary income. The farming business that she has been with for 20 years earns her about 23,000 KHR per day.

This is the first microloan for Pov’s group with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner); Pov is in the same cycle as her joint member. She and her co-borrower are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. Pov will buy herbicide for her cassava farm and potash for her farmland. She has high hopes that she can grow her cassava fruitfully so that she can upgrade her lifestyle.
