A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.


Sun's Group's story

Sun is 57 years old and married with five children. She and her group member live in a village of the Cheung Prey district of Kampong Cham province. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice for 35 years, earning about 40,000 KHR per day.

Sun is just now with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, this cycle. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Sun wants to use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to grow her crops better and produce higher yields in order for her to increase her family’s income.
