Ven's Group's story

Residing in a rural area of Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district in Cambodia, Ven is a 42-year-old married woman. She has six children, two (a daughter and a son) of whom are under her responsibility and currently in school. Ven and her husband earn their living through farming rice, earning approximately 30,000 KHR daily and saving about 14,000 KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living. Ven has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for five loan cycles already. With those loans, she has succeeded in fixing her house and supporting her rice-growing business. Now she is leading a group member who has just been with VisionFund for one loan cycle to take out a loan in the amount of 1,200,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR respectively. With the requested loan portion, Ven plans on buying fertilizer and paying for labor. She will be able to increase her income and better support the education of her beloved school-aged children after receiving and wisely using her loan portion.
