A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy more groceries to sell and fertilizer for her crops..

Sinat's Group's story

Sinat, 36, is a married mother of two children from a district located in Kampong Cham province. For the past ten years she has sold groceries and grown cassava on her two hectares of farmland. She earns about 32,000 KHR a day and saves approximately 10,000 KHR daily after deducting expenses. The main challenge for her is the low price of cassava in the marketplace.

Sinat is the leader of a group of four. This will be her third loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. The past loans have helped her improve her cassava farm.

She is now leading a group of four who are applying for a loan through VisionFund. They all live in the same village in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She will use her portion of the loan to buy more groceries to sell and fertilizer for her crops.

Sinat expects this loan will enable her to increase her income. Her ambition is to better her shop and fields and keep her children in school.
