A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more fruit to resell.


Pov's Group's story

Pov, 49, is a married mother of eight children. She has been engaged in selling various kinds of fruits in a rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. Of her eight children, she still has four to take care of, and they are still in school. She has been in this fruit-selling business for several years. Her current occupation earns her approximately 40,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 20,000 KHR each day, after meeting daily expenses.

Pov has received loans from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for four loan cycles already, and the other member of Pov's Group has been with VisionFund for five loan cycles. Pov fully paid back her loans, which have helped her relieve her family’s burdens and improve their livelihood. Now she and her group member are applying for another loan, of 2,000,000 KHR. As group leader, she is going to use her portion of the loan to buy more fruit to resell. She hopes that this new loan will enable her to grow her current business, earn a larger income, and make convenient living conditions for her family.
