A loan of $425 helped a member to pay a plowing fee.


Van's Group's story

A breadwinner in the family of seven kids, Van is 61 years old and a widow. To overcome the family’s hardship, she grows sugarcane and sells sweets. This is the business that she has been with for six years. Van, an eight time borrower, is in the same group as a four time borrower in order to apply for a new loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner).

Her living status has upgraded steadily and getting better day by day. Now, she is seeking a loan of 1,000,000 KHR while her co-borrower is applying for 600,000 KHR. Van, as the group leader, will use her loan portion to pay a plowing fee. She highly hopes that she can earn triple income and support her family better than before.
