Samith's Group's story

Samith is 54 years old and married. She lives with her family in a rural area in the Sangke district of Battambang province. She has five children.

Growing rice, oranges and Jackfruit are the main sources of her family’s income to make living. She has been in this business for 10 years. With the current business, she can earn approximately 45,000KHR per day and save about 15,000KHR each day for the future needs.

Her husband works as a motor-taxi driver.

This is the second micro loan for Samith with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The other member has been with VisionFund for six loan cycles. Samith completely repaid her loan and is the group leader.

Samith will use her portion to repair an old motorbike for her husband’s business. She hopes this loan will enable her to repair it so he can provide better service to his customers.
