A loan of $525 helped a member to buy a sewing machine to help her tailoring business.


Yary's Group's story

Yary is aged 24 years and married with two dependent children, both of whom are still in school. She lives in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district, earning a living by working as a tailor in a local area while her husband works as a paid construction worker to help earn income to support the family. Having been in business for twenty years, they can earn about KHR25,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR 10,000 each day for their future needs.

This is Yary’s first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Yary, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy a sewing machine to help her tailoring business. She hopes to improve her current business so as to better her living conditions and keep her children in school.
