Sambo's story

Sambo, who appears in the photo, is 61 years old. She is a farmer in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She earns an income of approximately $10 USD per day to support her family's needs.

Sambo requested a loan from Kiva of 6,000,000 Riels to purchase land to farm and support her agriculture activities, among other things. She believes that by taking this step to seek a loan from Kiva she will be able to increase her income by adding more land, expanding her farm, and increasing her daily income in order to better support her family.
