A loan of $600 helped a member to buy good rice seed, potash, and to pay for transplanting fees.


Mach's Group's story

Mach, 53, is a farmer from Kampong Cham province where her residential area is. She is married and blessed with four children, one of whom is in school. Her three hectares of rice cropping has returned her about 26,600 KHR per day. With this loan, she and her other fellow group members are taking out their second microloan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid her past loan to support her business and make her living conditions better than before. Additionally, she can now afford to buy household appliances and keep her kids in school. For this cycle, she leads a group of three to apply for a new loan. The total amount for the entire group is 2,400,000 KHR, of which 1,200,000 KHR is her loan portion. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy good rice seed, potash, and to pay for transplanting fees, as well as the plowing fee. She hopes that she can gain a high yield, better than last year.
