Saminas's story

Residing in Dambae district of Kampong Cham Province where cassava growing is a common business in the area, Saminas is 34 years old and a mother of three children all of which attend the local public school. She is also a peasant who owns three hectare and grows cassava in order to survive and cover her children’s education. This is the business that she has been in for 9 years. For Saminas, this is the fourth loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loans have supported her business and helped her provide for her family’s needs through a decent income from her business. Now, she is in need of working capital for her business. Therefore, she is seeking a new loan with VisionFund in order to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees and labor fees. She hopes to grow her cassava in a timely manner and have a fruitful crop so that she can set aside some money to build a big house for her children.
