A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and bean seeds.

Senghak's Group's story

Residing in a rural village of Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district in Cambodia, Senghak is 27 years of age and married. She has a son and a daughter, both of whom are her responsibility. One of her children is currently a student while the other one stays home to assist in the family’s businesses, which are rice-growing and bean-planting. To support the family, Senghak farms rice and plants bean while her husband catches fish and works for others as a paid worker to supplement the income. Together, this couple can earn around 30,000 KHR per day and save about 10,000 KHR after the daily expenses. Senghak, a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), is leading a member who is a third-time borrower to apply for a loan in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. With the previous loans, the group leader Senghak was able to improve the family’s lifestyle. This time, she will use the requested loan portion to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and bean seeds to support her current businesses. This hard-working woman (Senghak) believes that she will be able to improve her family’s living conditions even better after receiving her portion of the loan and using it in a smart manner. She is also willing to use the income generated by the current businesses to send all her kids to school and fully support their education.
