Hieat's Group's story

Hieat is a 33-year-old married woman who lives in a rural area of the Ponhea Krek district, which is located in the Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. She has four dependent children, all of whom are in school. To support her family, she plants cassava on a one-hectare farm and takes various jobs where she works for a salary. Each day, she is able to earn approximately 19,000 KHR and manages to save around 12,000 KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living. She has already taken out and repaid previous loans from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and has made good use of the money to improve her family's living standards. She is requesting a new loan to buy gasoline and to cover the cost of hiring people to work on her farm. She leads a four-person loan group whose members are requesting a loan for 4,100,000 KHR. Hieat strongly believes that she can use her portion of this loan, which is for 1,000,000 KHR, to provide her family with a better life. She will use the profits she expects to earn to bring her dream house to life and buy a new motorbike to make the transportation from her home to her rice field easier.
