A loan of $700 helped a member to buy additional grocery items.


Sambath's Group's story

Sambath, age 38, is married and has two schoolchildren. She supports her household by selling grocery items while her husband supplements the family's income through rice farming. She has been engaged in this business for 4 years. Sambath is a fourth-time borrower and joins a group with another member who is a third-time borrower to apply for a new loan with VisionFund,Kiva's partner. The past loan that she has completely paid back has supported her business with a decent income. As a result, she can keep her kids in school. For this cycle, both of them are seeking for the same loan amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy additional grocery items for resale, including canned food, instant noodle, duck eggs, etc... She hopes this purchase will restock her grocery items for timely resale and to get back a good profit for her family's sake.
