A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and insecticide, and to pay for labor cost.


Phut's Group's story

Phut, 58, is a resident from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She deals with her daily cost of living via rice cropping on two hectares area and a paid-working job. She has been involved in the current business for 11 years with a decent income in return. This positive impact resulted from the outcome from the past loans which she has fully repaid.

With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), she is in her fourth–cycled loan and she is a leader of a group consisting of three for this cycle. She and one of her co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR whereas her joint borrower is applying for 1,000,000 KHR.

As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and insecticide, and to pay for labor cost. She strongly believes that she can gain a good yield, better than before.
