A loan of $450 helped a member to buy fishing materials.

Pov's Group's story

Pov is 43 years old and married with nine children, five of whom are under her responsibility and either in school or employed. She and her family live in Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district in Cambodia.

Pov and her husband work as fishmongers to provide a decent life for the family. Having been in the current business for more than twenty years, this hardworking couple is able to earn approximately 20,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 4,000 KHR for future needs after deducting the daily cost of living.

This will be Pov’s fifth time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loans that she already paid back enabled her to secure food needs for her family, which made her so satisfied. Pov is now leading a group of two female members to seek a loan in the amount of 1,800,000 KHR in total. With her requested loan portion, Pov plans on buying fishing materials such as a fish trap and cast net to support the fish-catching business. Pov hopes to better support the family and advance the education of her children as far as possible.
