Sambath's Group's story

Sambath is 36 years old and a married mother of three schoolchildren. She resides in Sangke district of Battambang Province. She deals with her family’s hardships through rice farming with support from her husband who uses his spare time to earn extra income via working for other for a fee. Her original loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) was three loan cycles ago. She has made good use of her previous loans to relieve the family’s burden and keep up a good living standard gradually.

Now, she is leading a group of four to apply for a new loan. Her group's requested microloan with VisionFund is 4,000,000 KHR. Sambath whose loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR, will spend her loan portion to pay plowing fees for her farmland. She really hopes that she can double her income and better her living conditions.
