A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more grocery items for resale.


Samnang's Group's story

Originally from ThmorKol district of Cambodia, Samnang is a married mother with three children. To feed her household, she sells grocery items in a small stall while her husband works for others for a wage. Having been in this business for five years, she is able to earn about 22,000 KHR per day. Four cycles ago was her original loan with VisionFund, Kiva's partner. For that loan, she was in a group of two members. With the past loan fully repaid, she can earn a decent income and uplift her lifestyle. Now, she and her co-member are seeking the same loan amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As a group leader, her loan portion will be used to buy more grocery items for resale, including sugar, salt, canned food and instant noodles. She hopes this loan will help her to replenish her grocery items on time for customers' needs, so as she can make more income.
