A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more fish to resell.


Lam's Group's story

Lam is aged 40 and married. She lives in a rural area located in the Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She has five children. Two are school age and depend upon her.

Lam has sold fish to earn a living for almost twenty years. Her husband also complements theeir family's income by working as a motor taxi-driver in the village. The business earns about KHR 15,000 per day, to meet the family’s need. She can save about KHR 7,000 each day.

This is Lam's second loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. (The other person in the photo is part of Lam's group.) The past loan helped to generate a profit that improved her family's standard of living and supported her children’s education.

Lam is leading her group of two to request a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy more fish to resell. Lam hopes this loan will enable her to make more income.
