Lon's Group's story

Originally from Battambang province, Lon is a 48-year-old mother of seven children. Currently, four of her children are still in school and remaining three are working as paid workers. To deal with the daily cost of living, she sells fish and her husband is a construction worker. She has been engaged in the current business for 10 years. With VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, she is the nine-cycled client. After the last loan which she has repaid back completely, she feels so empowered that she can sustain her living status in proper condition. Now, she is in need of working capital, so she formed a group of four to apply for a new loan. She is seeking for 1,400,000 KHR while her co-borrowers are seeking for 1,000,000 KHR. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy construction materials to support her husband’s occupation. She hopes that she and her husband can make more profit and keep her children in school until tertiary level.
