A loan of $300 helped a member to buy gasoline and fertilizer to support his farmland.


Samang's Group's story

Age 65 and a local villager from Sangke district of Battambang province, Samang is married and blessed with five children. He strives for a living via working as a local school teacher and manages a mango plantation as the main source of his family’s income. Over his five years' engagement in the current business, he is able to earn up to 32,500 KHR per day. This is not the first loan for Samang with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He managed his past loan wisely to relieve his family’s burden and improve it in a gradual manner. For this cycle, he is leading a group of three to apply for a new loan. The total loan for his entire group is 1,100,000 KHR. Samang, whose loan portion is 300,000 KHR, will use his loan to buy gasoline and fertilizer to support his farmland. He hopes that this purchase will help him to boost his crop productivity in a timely manner and return a good yield with high profit.
