A loan of $650 helped a member to buy more grocery items to resell.


Von's Group's story

Von, age 26, is married and has two children. She supports her family as a farmer who grows rice and chillies and she also supplements her income by selling grocery items. She is able to earn up to 20,000 KHR from the current business which she has been engaged in for seven years. The main challenge for her family’s business is the lack of water supplies for the farmland.

Including this loan, Von has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for three loans. Her past loans have helped her better support the business as well as her family. Moreover, her living conditions are getting better day by day. Now, she is leading her group of two to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy more grocery items to resell and to pay laborers to harvest the rice. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income and to send her children to school.
