A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cassava farmland.


Samon's Group's story

Samon is 59 years old and a mother of five children. She lives in the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, where her cassava and rice are growing. She has been involved with this business for 19 years, and it has returned her 39,700 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

This is the second loan cycle for her with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and she is a leader of a group of two for the loan. For Samon, she has completely paid back her past loan successfully, and it had a positive impact in her household. She and her co-borrower are requesting a loan for 1,000,000 KHR and 1,500,000 KHR, respectively. As a leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava farmland. She hopes to collect a better yield than before.
