Yom's Group's story

Yom, 57, is a mother of eight kids. Currently only three children are under her responsibility, as they are still in school. She and the rest of her family live in the Sampov Meas District of Pursat Province, where her agribusiness is located, farming rice on two hectares. Having been with this business for ages, she is able to generate about 18,100 KHR per day to cover the daily cost of living. This is the sixth loan for Yom from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loans, which she has fully repaid, have enabled her to strengthen her business over time and to earn a good income. Now, she is the leader of a group of three borrowers. Out of the group’s 2,800,000 KHR loan, 1,400,000 KHR is Yom’s portion. As the leader, she will spend her portion to buy five sacks of fertilizer and to lease additional farmland. Moreover, she will spend part to buy two pigs, as well as pig feed, and five chickens to raise. She hopes she can earn more income, so she can run a small business for the benefit of her kids.
