A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland.

Sila's Group's story

Living in a wooden house located in Kampong Cham province’s Tbaung Khmum district, Sila is now 35 years old and married. She has four children, all of whom are still in school. Sila and her husband are farmers who grow rice and cassava, and they have engaged in the business for 15 years. The current business earns them about 30,000KHR per day to support the family’s needs, and they can afford to save about 15,000KHR each day.

Sila is a third cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and she completely paid back the past loan, which has helped her relieve her family’s financial burden and generate more income for her family. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, Sila wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland and will use a portion to pay labor fees. She hopes the loan from VisionFund will enable her to make a more healthy rice crop to make more income.
