A loan of $275 helped a member to buy potash and insecticide for her rice crops.

Pou's Group's story

Pou, age 54 and widowed, is a rice farmer from the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She has supported herself by farming rice on three and a half hectares of land for the past 10 years.

Pou is the group leader of this group of two borrowers. She and her co-borrower have been with Kiva partner VisionFund for at least five cycles. She has fully repaid her previous loans, which have helped her to gradually build up her business into an increasingly stable source of income. She is confident that her new loan will help her to continue to improve her livelihood.

For this cycle, she will use her loan portion to buy potash and insecticide for crops.

Her goal is to gain a high yield that she can offer for sale at a good selling price.
