A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fishing net.

Leap's Group's story

Leap, aged 30 years old, is the mother of two daughters and two sons. The rest of her family is residing in a rural area of Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has struggled to support all of her kids who are still in schools via working for others for a fee; her husband also helps to generate more income as a fisherman. For the 10 years that she has engaged in this business, she has been able to earn approximately 13,000 KHR per day. Leap's group consists of two female members; she is the group leader as a second time borrower while her member is a fourth time borrower. With success, she has paid back the entire loan and it has helped her to better support her husband's business via purchasing a fishing outfit and keeping her children in school. Now she is seeking a new loan with her member with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fishing net for her husband's business. She hopes to generate more profit and keep her children in school until tertiary level.
