A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy rice to support her family.


Phal's Group's story

Phal is 33 years old and a villager living in a rural village of Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Cambodia. She is married and a mother of four dependent children, all of whom are school-aged children. Phal offers a decent life for her family by growing cassava while her husband complements the income by working for others for a wage. Together, they are able to earn around 25,000KHR per day and manage to save approximately 10,000KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living.
This will be Phal’s second time requesting a loan via Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The previous loan has enabled her to better support her family and improve the family’s living condition as well. Now, Phal is leading a loan group of four female members to request a loan. As a group representative, Phal will spend her loan portion to buy rice to support of her family. She hopes this loan will enable her family to better their living conditions and keep her children in school.
