Ol's Group's story

Ol is a resident from Sa Ang district in Kandal province. He is a father blessed with four children, two of whom are in school. To cover the daily cost of living, his entire family relies on the rice-farming business and fish catching. His wife's job is working in a local factory in the area. He has been with this business for 24 years, and it has returned him about 26,400 KHR per day. The main challenge for his business is the low crop yield caused by insects. To overcome his challenge, he applied for a new loan with VisionFund, a Kiva partner.

This is the fourth-cycle loan for Ol with VisionFund. The past loan, which he has repaid back with success, has enabled him to improve his living conditions at a gradual pace. For this cycle, he teams up with a group of three to get a new loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, he will use his loan portion to pay for plowing fees and to buy fertilizer, insecticide, plus rice seeds. He hopes to grow his rice on time with a good yield so that he can keep his kids in school.
