A loan of $450 helped a member to buy fertilizers and insecticides and to pay for labor costs.


Rat's Group's story

A citizen of the province of Battambang, Rat is a 32-year-old married mother of four. For her family, rice farming and paid working jobs are the main source of their income. She has had her rice-farming business for ages and it now returns to her nearly 20,000 KHR per day. This is a fourth-time loan for Rat and her co-borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Rat has fully repaid her past loan completely and it has enabled her to upgrade her lifestyle better than before. For this cycle, she is seeking 1,000,000 KHR while her joint borrower is applying for 700,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizers and insecticides and to pay for labor costs. Rat hopes to gain a good crop yield that will be better than in the past.
