A loan of $1,700 helped a member to stock her grocery store.

Phon's Group's story

A resident of the Sampov Meas district of Pursat Province, Cambodia, Phon is a 53-year-old married woman with two children, one of whom (her daughter) is a school-aged child and still dependent on her. Phon earns her living by selling grocery items and food, such as noodles and cooked rice with a variety of dishes.

This will be Phon’s fourth time requesting a loan via Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is very happy with the past loans that she obtained because she has successfully increased her working capital, which is crucial for business. Now she is leading a group of five female members to apply for a new loan with VisionFund. With the help of her portion of this loan, she will be able to buy more grocery items, such as soap, shampoo, sugar, canned items, and so on; this will help her meet her customers' needs. After receiving her loan, she believes that she will be able to improve customer satisfaction and thereby boost her income.

In this group: Phon, Pheng, Neam, Sreymao, Sokheng
