A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fertilizer, rice seed and insecticides for her farmland as well as more chickens.


Pouk's Group's story

For the past eleven years Pouk, 43, has supported her family by farming rice on two hectares of land and raising chickens. She is a villager from the Moung Russey district of Battambang province and a mother of five children. Two of the children are in school while one is still too young to attend. The other two are working at home as well as doing household chores.


Pouk is a four-time borrower with VisionFund, one of Kiva’s partners. She repaid her past loans successfully. These loans have enabled her to lift her lifestyle at a gradual pace.


Now Pouk is applying for a 3,400,000 KHR loan as the leader of her group’s three members. Her two co-borrowers will each receive 1,000,000 KHR of the loan. She will spend her loan disbursement on fertilizer, rice seed and insecticides for her farmland as well as more chickens. She hopes to see her lifestyle continue to improve.
