A loan of $1,050 helped to buy a plot of farmland on which to grow rice and vegetables.


Samul's story

Samul, a rural villager from Kampong Cham province’s Prey Chhor district, is 29 years old and is married. She has two children who solely rely on her as they are still in school.

To feed her family, Samul grows rice and sells vegetables. This is her family's primary source of income. Her husband works as a paid worker for extra income. Samul has been in this business for 10 years.

Samul has never been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before. She is applying for her first loan in order to buy a plot of farmland to expand her business. She hopes to increase her income and sustain her lifestyle.
