A loan of $725 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland and to pay labor costs.

Sinat's Group's story

Living in a wooden house in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Sinat is 50 years old and married, with two children, both of whom are dependents and are still in school.

The main sources of her family’s income are from rice farming and cassava planting. Her husband works as a paid worker in the local area to earn additional income for the family. Sinat and her husband have been in this business for ten years. With the current business, she can earn about KHR 16,000 per day.

This is the fourth loan for Sinat with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia and she completely paid back the previous loans. She successfully used the past loan to improve her livelihood.

Now leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund Cambodia of KHR 1,400,000 each, Sinat is going to use a portion of her loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and a portion to spend on labor. She hopes to increase her crop yield and to sell it for a good price, so as to keep her children in school.
