Ra's Group's story

Aged 25, Ra is a young father who does rice cropping. He resides in a village located in Battambang province’s Thmor Koul district. During his spare time, he also drives a kind of transportation vehicle called “Ro Mork”, a motorcycle pulling a trailer full of people, in order to earn supplemental income. He has engaged in the current business for three years.

Ra has never been with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner) before. He is joining a group consisting of two male borrowers, including himself, to take a new loan.

Ra will spend his loan portion to buy five sacks of fertilizer, to pay for plowing fees, and to buy insecticide for his farmland. He hopes to increase his income and improve his lifestyle.
