A loan of $450 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed, and to pay transplanting fees.


Iy's Group's story

Originally from Kampong Cham province, Iy is 48 years old and a married mother of four children. For 20 years, she has overcome her family's hardship via rice farming and working for others for a fee. The current business has returned her about 28,800 KHR per day.

Iy, who has been with Vision Fund (Kiva’s partner) for two cycles, has repaid her past loan successfully. It has enabled her to improve her living conditions. Moreover, she can afford to buy more household appliances for her family as well.

Now, she leads a group consisting of two female members to apply for a new loan. Her loan portion is 1,200,000 KHR while 500,000 KHR is her joint member's requesting loan amount. She will spend this loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed, and to pay transplanting fees. She hopes that she can gain a high yield with better profits than before.

In this group: Iy, Vy
