A loan of $925 helped a member to pay for the harvesting and shipping fees of her agricultural output and to buy two pigs to raise.

Mab's Group's story

Mab, age 33 and divorced, singlehandedly supports her two children, both of whom are in school. In order to generate enough income, Mab runs three ventures. She grows rice on two hectares of farmland. She makes and sells small, traditional cakes made from flour and sugar. She also raises pigs and chickens. From her current businesses, she is able to earn up to 17,500 KHR per day. The family lives in a village in the Sampoa Meas district of Battambang province.

Mab has been with VisionFund (a Kiva partner) for the past three loan cycles. The past loans have helped a great deal in injecting capital to ensure the smooth operation of her businesses. She has successfully repaid her previous loans.

For this cycle, she is the leader of a loan group consisting of three female members, including herself. She is applying for a loan in the amount of 800,000 KHR, and the other two borrowers are requesting loans of 1,400,000 KHR each. Mab will use her loan funds to pay for the harvesting and shipping fees of her agricultural output. Additionally, she will use a portion of her loan to buy two more pigs to raise. 

She is confident that she can harvest her crop production in good time and sell it at a high price, allowing her to generate a higher income. This in turn will allow her to expand her animal husbandry venture.

Mab's goal is to support her children's education to the tertiary level.
