Ann's Group's story

Ann, age 34 and a married mother blessed with five children, is a farmer who grows rice and cassava as the primary source of income. To help her in earning additional income, her husband catches fishes for resale and works for others for a fee. Ann has been involved in the current business for 10 years, earning about 27,000 KHR per day.

Having been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for a cycle, Ann has managed to utilized her past loan wisely to improve her living condition better than before, and has repaid her past loan already.

Now, in a group of two, she is a leader. She is seeking 1,400,000 KHR whereas her co-borrower is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy gasoline for her hand-tractor to plow her farmland and pay for labor costs.

She hopes that she can gain a good income from her cash-crops.
