A loan of $575 helped a member to pay for plowing fees and buy fertilizer.


Phos' Group's story

Phos, a villager from the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap Province, is 26 years old and a mother of two little kids. She is a rice farmer who can earn almost 30,000 KHR per day after being involved in her business for six years. Including this loan, she is a second cycle borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid her past loan completely and it enabled her to improve her living conditions at a gradual pace. For this cycle, she leads a group of four other women to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to pay for plowing fees and to buy fertilizer for her crop. She strongly believes that she can gain a better yield.
