Pheakdey's Group's story

Pheakdey, 29, is married and has two dependent children who are still small. Her family lives in a house with a thatch roof, located in Pursat province’s Sampov Meas district. The main source of her family’s income is from farming rice, while her husband works as a paid worker in the local area to supplement the income. She has been running her business for five years, earning about KHR13,000 per day and she is able to save about KHR7,000 each day.
Pheakdey received her first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, three cycles ago and has effectively used it to sustain her family’s business and support her family’s needs. With a good business, she is now leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on buying piglets to raise to earn additional income. She hopes to increase her crop yields to earn more income to make a better living and also send her children to school.
