A loan of $450 helped a member to buy a boat for her fishing business.


Aisas' Group's story

Aisas is 30 years old and married with four children. Her family lives in a village of the Sangke district in Battambang province, and she and her husband earn a living through fishing. To supplement their income, her husband also works as a paid worker in the local area. The current business earns her family about 20,000 KHR per day and her family manages to save about 8,000 KHR per day after daily expenses. Aisas has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for five loan cycles while the other member is just joining VisionFund this cycle. Aisas' past loans have helped relieve her family's financial burden to a great extent. She is now leading a group of two members to apply for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy a boat for her fishing business. She hopes to catch more fish so as to sell them for a good price and make a better living.
