Pich's Group's story

Pich is 59 years old and a farmer who grows rice in the Koh Sotin district of Kampong Cham province. She is the breadwinner in the family and a widowed mother of five. She covers her daily cost of living via a betel-nut trading business and sesame farming, as the main sources of her income. She has been with this business for ages, and it has earned her a decent income with which to support her family. Now, she is seeking her first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is the leader of a group of five borrowers requesting a loan of 1,200,000 KHR each. She will spend her entire loan portion on sesame seeds and a plowing fee. She hopes that she can earn a better income than before.
