A loan of $775 helped a member to buy rice seed, potash, and insecticide for his farmland.


Samoeun's Group's story

Samoeun is 51-years-old and a married father of three children. He is a peasant who does corn planting on four hectares of farmland located in Bovel district of Battambang province where his residential area is. To better feed the family, his wife also works for others for a fee during her spare time from the farmland. The 10 year involvement in the current business has returned him about 34,400 KHR per day. With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), Samoeun and his co-borrower, in the group of two, are first time borrowers seeking the loan of 1,500,000 KHR each. As the group leader, he will spend his loan portion to plow his farmland and to buy rice seed, potash, and insecticide for his farmland. He deeply hopes that he can gain high productivity from his crops and make more income for his family.
