A loan of $475 helped a member to buy cast nets and other materials for supporting her fishing business.


Komsot's Group's story

Komsot is 29 years old and married. She lives with her husband and three children in a rural area of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. All of her children are in school. She and her husband have been engaging in fishing for several years and complement the income by working for others for a fee. Together they can earn about 50,000KHR per day and manage to save about 15,000KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

Komsot is in the second cycle with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She completely paid back the loan, which has helped her improve her family’s living condition. Now she is leading her group of two to request a loan. As the leader, Komsot is going to use her portion to buy cast nets and other materials for supporting her fishing business. Through this loan, she hopes to catch more fishes so as to better her standard of living and keep her children in school.
