Somaly's Group's story

A married woman named Somaly is in her 59 years of age and she is blessed with five children, living in Battambang province. The main source of this family comes from cassava, rice, and corn growing. Sometimes, she works for others for a fee to supplement income.

Somaly lacks of working capital, so she formed a group of five members to take out a loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). This is the second time of her and the past helpful loan that was paid back successfully enabled her to renovate her house more comfortable to live. As a representative of a group, she will wisely spend her loan on buying cassava seeds and paying for the plowing fee. She hopes that this loan will help her improve the business so as to earn more income to support her family.
