A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy good rice seed for replanting her crop.


Sen's Group's story

A widowed mother of eight children, two of whom are still in school, Sen is 41 years old and a rice grower.

Sen farms rice on a 3.5-hectare area during the rainy season and on a twelve-hectare area during the dry season. She has been in her current business for ages. She is able to earn up to KHR 24,000 per day.

Sen has been with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner) for the past five cycles and has fully repaid her loans with success. From the previous loans, her living condition has improved.

Now, in a group of four, Sen is the leader. The total amount of her entire group loan is KHR 4,300,000, of which KHR 1,000,000 is Sen’s portion.

As the leader, Sen will spend her loan portion to buy good rice seed for replanting her crop. She hopes that she can gain a high yield and make a good profit.
