A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fishing nets and a fish trap.

Roem's Group's story

Roem, a 41-year-old mother of three children, is a local farmer residing in the Sangke district of Battambang province. She has tackled her family‘s financial burden by catching fish to sell. Her husband also helps her to earn more income from his occupation as a construction worker. The 10 year involvement in the current business earns her about 41,000 KHR per day. The two cycles ago was her first loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has repaid back her past loan with success and it has enabled her to relieve her family’s burden and improve their livelihood. For this cycle, she formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. She, as the group leader, will use her loan portion to buy fishing nets and a fish trap. She hopes that this equipment will help her to catch more fish and earn more income.
