Saly's Group's story

Saly, a mother of three dependent children in her early 30s, is a villager from the Bovel district of the Battambang province. She is a local farmer who grows rice and sesame as her main source of income. She has been involved in this current business for 12 years and earns about 43,000 KHR per day. This is her sixth loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid back her past loan completely and it has enabled her to uplift her lifestyle at a gradual pace.

Now, in a group of two, she is a leader. She is applying for a loan of 1,500,000 KHR and her co-borrower is applying for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to pay for plowing fees, rice seeds, and labor costs. She highly hopes that she can gain a good yield with a good income in return, so that she can keep her kids in school.

In this group: Saly, Kimheng
