A loan of $575 helped a member to buy additional grocery items for resale.

Rem's Group's story

Reom is the mother of three children, only one of whom is in school. She is 43 years old and a rural villager from the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. To make a living, she grows rice on one hectare of farmland and also supplements the family’s income through selling groceries. She has engaged in this for 10 years and it has enabled her to earn up to 25,000 KHR per day.

This is the second loan for Reom with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She used her first loan to successfully stabilize her business as well as her living conditions. Now in a group of two, she is the leader in order to apply for a new loan. She is going to spend her portion to buy potash, seed, and insecticide for her bean farm. Moreover, she will use some portion of her loan to buy additional grocery items such as canned food, instant noodles, spices etc. for resale. She hopes to double her income and sustain her lifestyle.
