Samun's Group's story

Samun, 63, is a married father of five children residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang province. He has five children. To deal with the daily cost of living, he does rice cropping and pineapple planting. To help the family generate more income, his wife sells dessert after helping him on the rice farm. He has been involved in his current business for ages, earning about 20,000 KHR per day. This is the third loan for Samun’s group, composed of three members, with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). His past loans, which he has fully repaid, have enabled him to upgrade his living at a good pace. Now he and his co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, he will spend his loan portion to buy fertilizer for his farmland. He hopes that he can gain a good yield from his crop and make more income.
