Leoung's Group's story

Leoung is 55 years old and lives in a rural area of Dambae district located in Kampong Cham province in Cambodia. He is married, and the couple is blessed with three children. Leoung is a hard-working person.

He has been working tirelessly in his current business growing cassava to continually provide income for his beloved family. Leoung’s wife is also an industrious woman. She helps earn more income for the family by running a small local store selling grocery items.

To run his cassava-growng business smoothly, Leoung is leading a loan group of nine members, all of whom are first-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). They are seeking a loan of KHR 7,700,000 in total. As a group representative, Leoung will use his loan portion, which is KHR 1,000,000, to buy fertilizer and pesticides and to pay labor fees.

Leoung believes that his first-ever requested loan will have a huge positive impact on his cassava-growng business as well as his family's living standard.

In this group: Leoung, Kun, Phat, Yeang, Pan, Leak, Thon, Sorn, Mouy
