Toulas' Group's story

Toulas is living in the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province.He is single and struggles to earn a living by cassava planting. He also works for the local to earn extra income. On a daily basis, Toulas can earn an average of 29,800 KHR to cover the basic daily needs of his household.

He has been with Kiva's partner VisionFund for the past cycle and has repaid his past loan completely.

Now, he is the leader of a group that consists of two members. The group requests a loan of 2,500,000 KHR, of which 1,500,000 KHR will belong to Toulas. He will use a portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for his cassava and another portion to renovate his house.

He is hopeful that the yield of cassava will be higher and he will also able to have a proper house to shelter in.
