San's Group's story

San, 39 years old, resides in Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district in Cambodia. She is married and is a mother of six children, some of whom are school-aged and some of whom are employed as paid workers in Thailand. San offers a decent life for her family through raising pigs and cows. San’s husband complements the income by farming rice, planting bean, and catching fish. This hard-working couple can earn about 83,000KHR per day and they save approximately 14,000KHR after offsetting for their daily cost of living. San has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for seven loan cycles already. The previous loans helped her relieve her family’s burdens. Now San is leading a loan group with three female members to take out a loan in the amount of 3,700,000KHR in total. As a group leader, she will utilize her loan portion in this loan, which is 1,400,000KHR, to support her business as well as her husband’s business by purchasing pig feed, fertilizer, pesticide, and bean seeds. Via the help of this loan, San believes that she will be able to generate more income to the family and use the income to keep her school-aged children in school.
