A loan of $550 helped a member to buy potash for her cash-crop and to pay for her transplanting fee.

Dy's Group's story

A mother of one child residing in Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Dy is a farmer who grows rice on a two hectare area. The current business, which she has had for about two years, has returned her about 15,400 KHR per day. After offsetting her daily expenses, she can manage to save about 7,800 KHR per day.

This is the first micro-loan for Dy with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is applying for 1,000,000 KHR while her joint-borrowers are seeking 600,000 KHR each. In her group of three, she is the leader. She will spend her loan portion to buy potash for her cash-crop and pay for her transplanting fee. She hopes to grow her rice in a timely manner and improve her lifestyle better than before.
