A loan of $450 helped a member to buy cassava and corn to sell.


Here's Group's story

Here is a 41-year-old mother who lives in a rural village in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province with two children, one of whom is still in school and relies on her. Here sells cassava and corn as a main source of her family’s income. The current business, which she has been doing for 21 years, returns about 66,700KHR per day and she can manage to save only 15,000KHR after daily expenses.

This is the first cycle for Here with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is seeking a loan of 800,000KHR while her joint group member is requesting 1,000,000KHR.

As the leader, she will use this loan to buy cassava and corn to sell. She hopes to increase her income to make a better living, and keep her children in school.
