Mom's Group's story

Mom, aged 33, is a resident in a rural area of Ek Phnom district, Battambang province, Cambodia. She is married and has three dependent children, one daughter and two sons, who are either in school or are assisting in the family’s business. To gain income for the family, Mom works as a rice farmer and a tailor and her husband works as a motor-taxi driver. Mom has been involved in her current business for 16 years, enabling her to earn around 33,000 KHR per day and, after deducting her daily cost of living, there’s only around 11,000 KHR left for her savings.

Mom is leading a group of two, who both are fifth-cycle clients with Kiva’s partner VisionFund to apply for a new loan. The previous loans provided her with enough income to meet the family’s needs. With this new loan portion, she will spend it on the fees of plowing, harvesting her rice field, and buying a sewing machine. She hopes to multiply her income from her business so she can keep a good standard of living.
