A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizer and gasoline to use on the farm.

Mom's Group's story

A villager from Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Mom is 33 years old and a married mother blessed with five children; three of them still need her support, as one is too young for schooling and two are in school. Mom relies on a single source of income via rice farming, which she has been involved with for 20 years, earning about 27,000 KHR per day. Including this loan, she is a fifth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid her past loan which has helped her to uplift her lifestyle at a gradual pace. Mom is a group leader of a group of three borrowers. The entire group requests a total loan amount of 3,600,000 KHR, of which Mom will take a portion of 1,400,000 KHR. She will use the loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline to use on the farm. She also plans to use a portion of her loan to buy an additional plot of land for the purpose of expanding her farm. She strongly believes that the loan enables her to be able to uplift the living conditions of her family and also provide a chance for her children to get higher education.
