A loan of $525 helped a member to buy buffalo to support her farmland.


Som's Group's story

Som, a 52 year-old local farmer from Pursat Province, is married and has five children. Four of her children are still in school and a reaming is helping the family’s business, rice cropping. The two hectares of rice she cultivates has returned her about 22,600 KHR per day. This is the first loan for Som with VisionFund, a Kiva partner. She is in a group of two as the leader. She and her co-borrower are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. Som will spend her loan portion to buy buffalo to support her farmland. She hopes this purchase will relieve her financial burden in hiring others to plow her farmland and help her to make a good income.
