A loan of $125 helped a member to buy potash, fertilizer, and rice seed.

Hou's Group's story

Age 46 and a villager from the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Hou is the mother of six children who are still in school. For her, two hectares of rice cropping and a fish-catching business are the main source of income for the sake of her family. She is able to earn about 27,500 KHR per day from the business that she has managed since she was 20 years old. This is the first loan for Hou’s group with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She and one of her co-borrowers are seeking 200,000 KHR each while the remaining member is seeking 100,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion buying potash, fertilizer, and rice seed. She hopes that she can make her yield better than before so that she can sustain her living.
