A loan of $500 helped to buy pig feed to nourish her pigs.

Samon's story

Residing in a rural village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Samon is 32 years old and married. She has three children, all of whom are dependents and still in school. To support the big family, she and her husband have been raising pigs for six years. The current business earns her family about 40,000 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.

This is the first microloan for Samon with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy pig feed to nourish her pigs and use a portion of it to spend on building a piggery. She hopes to fatten her pigs and sell them for a good price to improve her family’s living condition and keep their children in school.
