A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for rice growing in the rainy season.


Hi's Group's story

A rural villager in Battambang province, Hi is a farmer who grows rice on six-hectares of farmland in the local area. Her husband helps with farming and works for others, for a fee, to supplement the family’s income.

Hi has six children. From her current business, which she has been with for 10 years, Hi is able to earn about 28,000 Cambodian Riel (KHR) per day to support her family’s needs.

Hi has never been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Now, she is leading her group of seven to apply for a loan. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for rice growing in the rainy season. She hopes that she can get a high crop yield from her farming so that she can have better living conditions.
