A loan of $275 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Theavy's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in Kampong Cham province’s Ponhea Krek district, Theavy is a 26-year-old mother of one son, who is still small. She is a rice farmer in the local area and she supplements her family’s income by growing cassava. Having been in the business for five years, she can make daily income from her current business of KHR 14,000 and she is able to save about KHR 7,000 per day, after expenses, for the future needs.

This is the fourth loan for Theavy with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia. She completely paid back the past loan which has helped her to relieve her family’s burden and improve her livelihood. Now, she is leading her group to ask for a loan of KHR 500,000 each.

As the leader, Theavy is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her rice paddy, so as to make a better living.
