A loan of $525 helped to build a house for her family.


Sam's story

Under a wooden house located in Kror Kor district, Sam is 31 years old and the mother of three children. All of her children still rely on her as two of them are still in school and one is too young for schooling. One and a half hectares of rice cropping and firewood selling, which are managed by her and her husband, are the main sources of family income. The current business earns her about 17,000 KHR per day. Sam has never been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before. She is seeking her first loan in order to build a house for her family, especially for her kids. She hopes to own a decent house as others to live in.
