Orm's Group's story

Orm resides in Sangke district in Cambodia’s Battambang Province. She is a 46-year-old widow with eight children, two (a daughter and a son) of whom are under her responsibility and currently in school.

Orm farms rice and raises pigs and cows in order to make a living. She is leading a loan group of three female members, all of whom have been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for five loan cycles already. Orm, as a group representative, mentions that the previous loans have enabled her to secure the family’s finances and food needs.

This time, Orm is leading her group to take out a loan in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As group leader, Orm will utilize her loan portion to buy fertilizer, feed for her animals (pigs and cows), and to pay wages to farm laborers to transplant her rice field.

She has a dream of expanding her business and generating more income for the family. Orm is also willing to use the anticipated income to support her school-aged children’s education.
