Mas' Group's story

Mas, 62, is a local villager from Tboung Khmom district of Kampong Cham province. To cover her daily cost of living, she grows rice and cassava as her main sources of income and she can earn 30,500 KHR per day. Mas is a four-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) with a successful repayment of her past three loans, and they have helped her family to have sufficient food.

Now, in a group of two, she is the leader. For this cycle, she and her co-borrower are requesting the loan amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. Mas will use her loan portion to pay for labor for her cassava business. She hopes her cassava will yield a better harvest so that she can get extra income for supporting the family.
