A loan of $550 helped a member to buy a proper bike for commuting to work.

Lekhena's Group's story

Living in a rural village in the Bakan district of Cambodia, Lekhena is 33 years old and married with three children, all of whom are still in school. The family’s main source of income is that Lekhena and her husband both are wage laborers for others in their village.

Lekhena has been with VisionFund, Kiva's field partner, for three loan cycles, successfully using her past loans to provide more food for her family. Now she is leading a loan group of three members, who have been with VisionFund ranging from one to three loan cycles. As the group leader, Lekhena is going to use her portion to buy a proper bike for commuting to work. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income than she currently does.
