A loan of $700 helped a member to buy piglets for her new business.

Ey's Group's story

Ey is 30 years old and dwells in a rural village in the Thmor Koul district where crop farming is one of the main businesses. She is married and has three dependent sons. All of her sons are still in school. To earn a living, she has been farming rice as her primary source of income for 16 years and she supplements her income by running a small grocery store in the front yard of her house.

Ey received her first loan from Kiva's partner, VisionFund, in 2009 and she completely repaid it. The loan has helped her to run her grocery store successfully and to send her sons to school regularly. Currently, she earns more than US$5 per day and is able to save around US$4 per day for her family. Now Ey and her group member Em are applying for another loan from VisionFund for KHR1,400,000 each. As the leader, she plans to use the entire loan to buy piglets for her new business. This loan will enable her to start up a new business to make her living conditions even better and also to keep her sons in school.
