Oeurb's Group's story

Oeurb, 33, is rural villager from Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. She has four children that count on her as they are still in school. To survive basic needs in her household, she catches fish for sale and is also a fruit seller. Her husband also helps to earn additional income via working as a mine clearer. Oeurb has been involved in her current business for 20 years.

This is the seventh loan cycle for Oeurb with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has used her past loan to help her to cover daily necessary expenses and to send her remaining young child to school. Now, she forms a group of three members including her; she is the leader and is seeking 1,400,000 KHR. For Oeurb, she will use her loan to buy a cast net to support her fish-catching business and to buy more fruits for resale. She hopes this purchase will support her business timely so that she can make more income to support her living and her children’s education until the tertiary level.
