A loan of $575 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her crop.

Ram's Group's story

Ram, a villager from Pursat province, is 47 years old and a married mother blessed with six children. Five of her kids are in school while the remaining one is too young for schooling. Her main sources of income are from paddy rice cultivation and selling handmade brown sugar. She is able to generate about 17,500 KHR per day from the business she has done for 19 years. With this new loan, she is in her fourth cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She can afford to send all of her kids to school from the successful past loans which she has fully repaid. Now she is in a group of three to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her crop. She highly believes that she can better her living conditions.
