A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy seed, insecticide and fertilizer.

An's Group's story

A villager from Sa Ang district of Kandal Province, An is in her mid 50s and a mother of six children. She is a local farmer who grows cucumbers and watermelon as the main sources of her income. She supplements her income by working for others for a fee. The business that she has had for ages currently returns her about 2,500 KHR per day.

Now, she is teaming up with a large group consisting of six borrowers to get a new loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan that she has paid back completely enabled her to support and improve her business gradually.

Now, the total amount of the loan requested by the entire group is 6,000,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is An's loan portion. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy seed, insecticide and fertilizer for her crop. She hopes that she can gain a better yield than before.

In this group: An, Sreymom, Sun, Chet, Chantha, Saroem
