Soemleng's Group's story

Soemleng is 43 years old and a local villager from Prey Chhor district of Kompong Cham province. She is blessed with one son and one daughter. Both of them are studying in school and they are under her responsibility. To deal with the family’s needs, she and her husband plant paddy rice and grow vegetables such as cucumber and bean as the main source of income; it is the business that she has had for 15 years.

Soemleng, the fourth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), has repaid back her past three loans with success and it has helped her to earn a decent income to buy household appliances and to keep her kids in school. For this cycle, she leads a group of two to get a new loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will use her entire loan portion to buy seeds and fertilizer to support her business. She hopes that she can grow her rice on time so that she can double her income.
