Samith's story

Samith is a citizen from Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, where rice is the well known crop in the area. She has been growing rice as her main source of income for her family. She supplements her income by selling soft drinks. Her husband works for others for a fee for extra income. The current business, which she has had for 10 years, has generated her about 125,000 KHR per day. Samith is in her sixth cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loans, which she has repaid completely, have enabled her to improve her family's living conditions gradually. Now, she is seeking a new loan of 1,000,000 KHR in order to buy more soft drinks for resale. She hopes to make more profit so that she can set aside some money for when she gets old.
