Srey Ya's Group's story

Srey Ya is 36 years old and lives in a rural area of Kror Kor district, located in Pursat province of Cambodia. She is married and blessed with two lovely daughters, both of whom are dependent on her. To meet the family’s needs, Srey Ya and her husband work for others as paid workers. Together, they earn approximately 16,500 KHR per day. Srey Ya has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles already, with which she succeeded in securing food needed for her family.

Now Srey Ya would like to bring out the entrepreneurial side of herself, by requesting a new loan in order to buy a plot of farmland, so that she can operate her own rice-growing business. Srey Ya’s group consists of two women; both of them are fourth-time borrowers with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. As a group representative, Srey Ya is leading her group to request a loan in the amount of 2,500,000 KHR in total. Her biggest expectation for the future is to be able to increase her family’s income, so that the living standard of her family will improve gradually.
