A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed.

Heam's Group's story

Heam, a mother of two schoolchildren, is 39 years old and a farmer. She and the rest of her family live in Kampong Cham province’s Tbaung Khmum district, where cassava is the popular cash-crop in the area. Similar to her neighbor, she also grows cassava and rice for additional income. She earns about 22,000 KHR per day

Heam has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for 17 years. In a group of two, Heam is the leader and a second-cycle borrower, while her joint member is a third-time borrower. They are seeking the same loan amount from VisionFund, 1,2000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed.

She hopes that she can grow her crops in a timely manner, and gain a better yield than last year.
