A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizers and insecticides for her farmland.


Phally's Group's story

Phally is married and a mother of six children, all of whom are still in school. She is a resident of the Dambae district in the Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. Phally and her husband manage two hectares of farmland where they grow paddy rice and cassava as their primary source of income. She and one of her co-borrowers are first-time borrowers whereas the remaining two borrowers are second-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). In a group of four, Phally is the leader. The total amount of her entire group loan is 3,600,000 KHR. As the leader, Phally will use her loan portion to buy fertilizers and insecticides, and to pay for plowing as well as the labor fees. She hopes to gain a good yield from her crop so that she can keep her children in school until the tertiary level.
