A loan of $700 helped a member to buy potash and to pay for her plowing fee.


Ly's Group's story

Ly, age 49 is the mother of eight children, who is a villager from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. Nowadays, she needs to support only three children as they are still in school. Her two hectares of rice farming, which she has had for 12 years, has generated her about 9,800 KHR per day.

Ly is a four-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. After the past loan which she has fully repaid back, she feels confident that she can upgrade her living conditions. For this cycle, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash and to pay for her plowing fee. She hopes that she can gain a higher yield than before.
