A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticide, and to pay labor costs.


Leap's Group's story

Leap was born in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, and is the 54-year-old mother of six children, one of whom is in school. She covers her expenses by rainy-season paddy-rice farming on two-and-a-half hectares and supplements this income by working for others. The business that she has had for 15 years earns almost 40,000 KHR per day. She has taken out and repaid three prior loans, and is now part of a two-person group which is requesting a loan from Kiva partner VisionFund. Leap made good use of her prior loans to improve her family's life, and she and her other loan group member are now requesting 1,400,000 KHR each. As a leader, she will use her funds to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and to pay for labor. She hopes that she can improve her yield from last year's level.
