A loan of $900 helped a member to pay the reaping fee.


Makara's Group's story

A father in early 20s living in Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Makara is a farmer who grows rice on one hectare. This is his primary source of income. Additionally, he works for others as a secondary source of income. This helps his entire household, especially his young child.

He earns 18,000 KHR per day from his current business, which pays for food and other necessary expenses. This is the first micro loan for Makara with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He leads a loan group of four. He seeks 500,000 KHR and other group members seek 1,000,000 KHR each. Makara will spend his entire loan portion to pay the reaping fee. He hopes that he can harvest his crop on time and earn a good income.
