A loan of $600 helped a member to pay a weeding fee and to buy potash for her cassava.


Sum's Group's story

Sum, 60 years old and a mother of five children, is a farmer from Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district. She earns a living via cassava and bean farming. With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), she is a second-time borrower. Her first loan, which she has fully repaid, enabled her to gain prompt support for her business and to improve her life. Now, she leads a group of two to apply for a new loan of 1,200,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to pay a weeding fee and to buy potash for her cassava. She hopes to make a good profit and keep her child in school until the tertiary level.
