A loan of $650 helped a member to buy pesticide and to pay for plowing.

Kong's Group's story

Kong, 46, is a villager from Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She is married and blessed with three children. Cassava growing and rice farming are the main sources for her to earn income. She is able to earn about 56,000 KHR per day and she can manage to save about 25,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

She has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for four past loans which have been fully paid back and have had a positive impact in her household. Now, she is applying for the new loan. She is now leading a group to seek the new loan. As a leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy pesticide and to pay for plowing for her farmland. She hopes that her cassava will produce a better yield so as to sell it at a good price.
