A loan of $1,275 helped a member to pay the reaping fee and buy fertilizer and insecticide for his crop.


Sambath's Group's story

Sambath, 32, is a resident from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. His two-hectare rice and sesame plantation is the main source of income. He has had the business for 10 years and he earns about 40,000 KHR per day.

This is not the original loan for Sambath with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He successfully repaid his previous loan and it enabled him to improve his lifestyle. Now, he teams up with a group of four to get a new loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The total requested loan amount for the group is 5,000,000 KHR. His loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR.

As the leader, he will spend his entire loan portion to pay the reaping fee and buy fertilizer and insecticide for his crop. He believes that he can collect his yield on time and have a better yield than last year.

In this group: Sambath, Chhror, Samang, Samia
