A loan helped to buy fertilizer and pesticide and to pay a plowing fee.

Samun's Group's story

Samon is a resident of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She is 47 years old, married and the mother of three children. She struggles to make a living by farming on a two-hectare plot where she grows rice. She has been farming for thirty years, which is almost her entire life. Samon and her business partner have taken out and repaid one previous loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). They are now applying for a second loan for 1,200,000 KHR each. As the leader, Samon will use her portion of this loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide and to pay a fee to plow her land. She believes that her family's living conditions will improve thanks to this loan.
