Sim's Group's story

Sim, a 27-year-old mother of two small children who are too young for schooling, is a farmer from Sampov Meas district of Pursat Province. Besides her paddy rice growing business, she also grows corn and sesame on a half-hectare area to supplement the family’s income. She has been involved in this business for five years and is able to earn up to 16,800 KHR per day. This is not Sim's first loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. After successfully repaying previous loans, she feels empowered to sustain her living conditions. Now, in a group of five, she is the leader. Sim will spend her loan portion to buy ten sacks of fertilizer for her farmland, to pay for plowing fees, and to pay a fee to lease farmland. She hopes that she can make more income to expand her farmland.

In this group: Sim, Soeurn, Sary, Kong, Pheourn
