A loan of $800 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland.


Dy's Group's story

Living in a thatched roof house in a rural village of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Dy is aged 41 years and married. She and her husband have two children. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice and planting cassava and cucumber, and they have been in this business for almost 21 years. With her current business, she is able to earn approximately 26,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day to support her family.

This is the second loan for Dy with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. Dy fully repaid the past loan, which has helped her better support her family with enough foods. Now, she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, Dy wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to make more crop yield and sell it for a good price, so as to improve her lifestyle.
