A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Yerm's Group's story

Residing in Battambang province, Yerm is a widowed mother of seven children. She is 55 years old. To support the family, she grows rice on four hectares of her farmland, a main source of her income, and plants corn on one-and-a-half hectares, for extra income. Her current business brings her about 22,200 KHR per day.

She has successfully paid back her past six cycles with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, and the past loans have improved her family's living condition. Now she is seeking a new loan of 1,400,000 KHR while another member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, Yerm will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland as well as to buy a hand tractor to support her farming. She hopes that she can get high crop yield from her business to keep her family's living conditions standard.
