A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide.

Si's Group's story

A resident of Kampong Cham province, Si is a 29-year-old married woman who is blessed with two children. Currently, one child is going to school and another one is too little to go to school. The family earns money from a 5-hectare rice farm which Si has occupied for about 8 years now. She also earns extra money from a small grocery business. The average income for her family is only 27,200 KHR per day.
She is the leader of a group of three borrowers. This is the second cycle for all of them to request a loan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. As a group, they are requesting for a loan of 4,000,000 KHR, which Si owns a portion of 1,500,000 KHR. She plans to use a portion of this loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her farm and another portion to buy some groceries to sell. She hopes that she will be able to harvest a higher yield from her rice farm through the help of this loan.
