Kea's Group's story

Kea, 49, is a rural villager from the Sangke district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has six children, some of whom are students and some are working for others for a fee.

She deals with her family’s hardship via one hectare of rice growing and pig-raising. Her husband also helps in making more income through working at the fishing community in the area. It is the business that she has been with for 15 years and is able to earn up to 41,700 KHR per day. Including this loan cycle, she is a fifth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has stabilized her business to be in a good shape.

Now she joins a group composed of two female members. The total amount of their entire requested loan is 2,400,000 KHR. For Kea as a group leader, and whose loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR, she will use it to buy four pigs, pig feed and to fix a pigpen. She hopes to fatten her pigs to a healthy condition so she can sell them for a high price and gain more income so she can buy an additional plot of farmland for expanding her rice cropping business.
