A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


San's Group's story

San, 56 years old, is a villager residing in a rural area of Prey Chhor district located in Cambodia’s Kampong Cham province. She is married and the mother of four children, one of whom is currently in school and still dependent on her. San and her husband make their living by farming rice and growing beans on a one-and-a-half hectare plot of farmland. Together they earn around 25,000 KHR per day and save approximately 8,000 KHR after deducting their daily cost of living. This is San's third loan request with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The previous loans have enabled her to support the family’s farming business and to cover household expenses. San is now leading a loan group of two female members to take out a loan in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As a group representative, San will spend her loan on fertilizer to apply to her farmland. San hopes that after receiving her requested loan she will be able to boost her productivity, thereby generating more income for the family. She will also use her anticipated income to move her family ahead and to pursue her children’s education.
