A loan of $775 helped a member to buy rice to sell.

Pheap's Group's story

Pheap, 42, lives in a rural village in Pursat province’s Sampov Meas district, Cambodia. She is married and has six children, all of whom are dependents. Some of her children are in school and some help in the family’s business. For the last four years, Pheap has been farming and buying rice to sell while her husband works as a solider in the local area to better support the family. Pheap can earn about KHR 34,000 per day to respond to her family’s needs and manages to save about KHR 20,000 each day for her future needs. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy field business.

Pheap is a first-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is now leading her group of four to request a loan. As the group leader, she is going to use her portion to buy rice to resell. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income for the family to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
