A loan of $300 helped a member to plow her farmland.


Samet's Group's story

Samet, a rural villager from Pursat Province, is 61 years old and married. She and her husband are blessed with five children, two of whom are still in school. To provide daily food for her kids, she earns a living via rice cropping on two hectares of land while her husband catches fish for resale. The business that she has had for 12 years has returned her about 19,700 KHR per day. Having been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for some time, Samet is a six-cycle client who has repaid her past loans already. The loans made a positive impact by enabling her to provide decent food for her kids and maintain her living. Now, she is in a group of two to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to plow her farmland in order to be ready for upcoming rainy season rice cultivation. She hopes that her business will grow at a good pace and return to her a good output.
