A loan of $1,325 helped a member to pay harvesting fees and to purchase sesame seed.

Neam's Group's story

Age 37, Neam is a local farmer residing in Battambang Province’s Moung Russey district. Her family consists of five members including her three children; she needs to cater for all of her children as two of them are students while the remaining one is helping with the household chores. Growing rainy-season rice on three hectares of farmland and planting sesame on two hectares of farmland are the main source of her family's income. Besides helping on the farm, her husband also uses his free time to work as motor-taxi driver to supplement their income. She has 10 years of experiences in this business, from which she is able to earn up to 24,700 KHR per day.

This is the fourth loan cycle for Neam and the other three co-borrowers with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The previous loans have helped improve her lifestyle and improve her business. She also has repaid back her loan with success. Now, she and two of her fellow group members are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each whereas the remaining member is seeking 1,000,000 KHR.

Neam wants her portion to pay harvesting fees and to purchase sesame seed as well as insecticide for her sesame farm. She expects to gain a good yield on time so she can double her income and keep better living conditions for her family and especially provide for her children’s education.
