Phan's Group's story

Phan is from the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is 59 years old and has four children; two daughters are still dependent on her and work as garment workers. She has been involved in rice farming for 42 years and supplements family’s income by working as a paid worker to support her family. She is able to earn about KHR 34,200 per day.

Phan has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three cycles while the other members have been with Kiva’s partner for one cycle. The past loans have made her family a better living. Now she is asking for a loan of KHR 800,000. As the group leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers, a plowing machine, and use a portion of it to buy one sewing machine. She hopes that this loan will enable her to raise her family's standard of living.
