A loan of $1,375 helped a member to pay for the harvesting fee.


Samet's Group's story

Age 42 and a mother of five schoolchildren in the local public school, Samet is married and overcoming the family hardship through rice cropping on seven hectare of farmland. She has been involved in this business for fifteen years and earns up to 31,700 KHR per day. In a group of four female members, Samet and one of her co-borrowers are fourth-time borrowers, while the remaining two are third-time borrowers with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner for this cycle.

Samet has smartly used her loan, which she repaid back with success, to support her business promptly and relieve her family’s burden. Specifically, she is able to earn a decent income to cover the daily basic needs of the family and keep her children in school. The total amount of this group cycle is 5,500,000 KHR. Samet, whose loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR, will use her portion to pay for the harvesting fee. She highly hopes that this loan will support her to gain high yield and earn a good profit so that she can keep supporting her children’s education.
