A loan of $500 helped a member to purchase fertilizer for her farmland.


Sina's Group's story

A resident from a rural area of Thmor Koul district located in Battambang province of Cambodia, Sina is 31 years of age. She is married and has two dependent children, one daughter and one son, both of whom are currently in school. To support her family, Sina has a small business selling grocery items whilst her husband complements the income by working as a rice farmer on two hectares of farmland.

This hardworking woman, Sina, has been operating her business (selling grocery items) for eight years. She is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The first loan that she requested has enabled her to secure the food needs for her family and, most importantly, be able to educate her beloved children by sending them to a good school. Now she is in need of money to support her husband’s rice-growing business by purchasing fertilizer to apply to the rice field. Therefore, she is leading a group member named Phally, who is a first-time borrower with VisionFund, to take out a loan in the amount of 1,000,000KHR each. Via the help of this loan, Sina strongly believes that the business of her husband will go smoothly and she will be able to expand her grocery-selling business so that the family’s income will increase gradually.
