A loan of $1,050 helped a member to pay for the labor fee to collect her cassava's yield.

Srey's Group's story

Originally from the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Srey is a 39-year-old mother who has three children to cater for as they are still in school. She has one hectare each for growing paddy rice and cassava in order to overcome the daily household expenses. For the 19 years that she has engaged in this business, she is able to earn up to 5,8000 KHR per day and save about 8,300 KHR per day after offsetting all the expenses.

This is not the original loan for Srey because she has been with VisionFund, a partner of Kiva, for the past five loan cycles. She has used her past loan wisely to upgrade her living conditions to proper standards and has repaid back the entire loan amount with success too. Now, she is in need of working capital for supporting her cash crop. Therefore, she forms a group of three--one is a sixth-time borrower and another one is a third-time borrower. All of them are applying for the same loan amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, Srey is going to spend her loan portion to pay for the labor fees to collect her cassava's yield.

She hopes to gather high cassava output during the pitch price so that she can make more income to maintain her living condition.
