A loan of $500 helped a member to buy rice seed and fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees.


Chou's Group's story

Chou, originally from the Sangke district of Battambang province, is sixty years old and a widower. He is a rice farmer who works hard to make a living for the sake of his family, especially his five children. He has farmed for the past ten years and when averaged, earns about 19,800 KHR per day.


Chou is new to VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. He is now forming a group of two to apply for a 1,000,000 KHR loan that will be divided between them. Chou will use his portion of the loan to buy rice seed and fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees. He hopes to gain a better yield than last year and so improve his living standards.
