A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy more grocery items for resale.

Som's Group's story

Som, 51 years old and a widow, is a grocery seller living in Battambang province. After several years of involvement in her current business, she is able to earn up to 13,600 KHR per day. This is the first micro loan for Som with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). For this cycle, she leads a group of four to get a new loan. She and her co-borrowers are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan to buy more grocery items for resale. She hopes that she can replenish her business on time and gain a high income to sustain her living.
