Sovannary's Group's story

Sovannary is a 30-year-old mother of two daughters who are still in school. She is a grocery shop owner in her village, selling various kinds of items in order to earn a living for the family’s sake. She has been in this business for 10 years. To supplement the family income, her husband also works for others for a fee.

Sovannary has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for ages. Her past six loans have been completely repaid already. These past loans have made a positive impact, upgrading her lifestyle progressively. Now, she is in a group of two applying for 1,400,000 riels each. As the group leader, she will use her portion to buy more grocery items for resale including salt, eggs, instant noodles, spices, etc. She hopes to replenish her grocery items in good time so that she can absorb more clients and earn more profit for her family – especially so that she can keep her children in school.
