Sdoeurng's Group's story

Sdoeurng is 42-year-old single lady who lives in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. She survives her daily cost of living through rice cropping, watermelon growing, and fish catching, which she has been doing for 10 years. Now, she is in need of some working capital for supporting her crop husbandry. Hence, she formed a group of two as first-time borrowers to apply for a micro loan in amount of 1,000,000 KHR each with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. For Sdoeurng as a group leader, she is going to use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, insecticide and seeds and to pay the plowing fee for her farmland. She hopes this loan will help her business promptly and return her a good yield so that she can double her income and improve her living conditions.
