Pheak's Group's story

Pheak, a mother of three schoolchildren, is a villager from Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. She is 39 years old and a rice grower in the local area. After 10 years' involvement in the rice farming business, she is able to earn up to 10,000 KHR per day. Pheak is on her fifth loan cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid her past loan already. The loan has supported her business on time. Now, she forms a group of five to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash and rice seed, and to pay for labor for her rice crop. Additionally, she will use a portion of the loan capital to buy pigs and pig feed, which she will use to earn extra income. She hopes to earn more income and to keep her kids in school until graduation.
