Buncheak's Group's story

Buncheak, who is 27 years old, resides in a rural village of Ek Phnom district in Cambodia’s Battambang province. She is married and a mother of a daughter and a son, all of whom are under her responsibility and in school. To support her family, Buncheak raises pigs while her husband complements the income by farming rice, growing beans, and working as a hairdresser. Together, they are able to earn approximately 40,000 KHR daily and save around 14,000 KHR after deducting the daily expenses. Buncheak is leading a group of two female members who both are fourth-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) to take out a loan in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. Buncheak will spend some portion of the loan to support her husband's business by buying fertilizer, pesticide, and bean seeds. In hopes of expanding the pig-raising business and earning more income for the family, the other portion of the loan will be spent on buying more piglets to raise. After receiving her loan portion and effectively using it, she highly hopes that she can generate more income and use the income to improve the condition of her family as well as to advance her children’s schooling.
