A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cash-crop and pig's feed for her pig-raising business.


Sambath's Group's story

Sambath, age 62, is married and a rural villager from Kror Kor district, Cambodia. She has four children in total, but only one son is under her responsibility as he is a student. To sustain her household, Sambath grows paddy rice and raises pigs while her husband helps with the rice farm and provides his threshing service for a fee. Sambath can earn about 20,000 KHR per day from the current business which she has been with for 12 years. This is her fourth microloan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The past loan, which she has paid back, has gradually provided support to her business with a decent income. For this cycle, she is seeking 1,400,000 KHR while her co-member is seeking 1,000,000 KHR. As a group leader, Sambath is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cash-crop and pig's feed for her pig-raising business. She highly hopes that she can double her income from both businesses so she can keep her children in school until tertiary level.
