Soeurm's Group's story

Residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang Province, Soeurm is a mother of three children. Currently, her two children have been sent to school while the remaining one is still under-aged for school. To support the daily cost of living, she grows rice while her husband is a house builder and also helps his wife on the farmland during the spare time.

For her 8 years of engagement in the current business, she is able to earn up to 25,800 KHR per day. Her first loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, was four cycles ago. The past loans - which she completely paid back - provided a positive impact on her lifestyle, as her living condition are getting better than before.

For this cycle, she is in a group of four seeking a new loan with VisionFund. The total of her group loan is 3,800,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is the loan portion for Soeurm, as the group leader. Soeurm will use her portion to pay for plowing and labor fees, plus pesticide costs.

She hopes to grow her rice timely and gain more yield with high income, lest she can maintain her lifestyle.
