A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy rice seed and potash and to pay for plowing.

Soeung's Group's story

Soeung is a 47-year-old mother of five children, three of whom are still in school. She is a farmer from Kandal province, Sa Ang district, where her residential area is. To assist her in earning extra income, her husband spends his spare time catching fish to sell. Soeung has worked in farming for 27 years. She is able to earn up to 26,400 KHR per day and she can save 9,700 KHR each day after deducting necessary expenses.

This is Soeung's second loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid her past loan with success and it helped improve her living conditions and keep her kids in school. Soeung now leads a group of four to apply for a new loan. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy rice seed and potash and to pay for plowing. She hopes that she will get a higher yield than last year so that she can earn more income for her kids and keep them in school.

In this group: Soeung, Sokhon, Srey, Chanthou
