A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her crop.

Sambath's Group's story

Sambath is a forty-eight-year-old married woman. She is currently living in Moung Russey district of Battambang province. In the house there are seven children, three of whom still count on her.

Sambath does rice farming as the main source of income. She has been engaged in the crop farming business for decades. The farm can earn an average income of 26,700 KHR per day, which is barely enough to support her family.

She is the group leader of a group of two borrowers. This is not either the first cycle or fifth cycle for her with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), as she is in the eighth cycle already. She has repaid back her past loan completely and it has enabled her to lift up her lifestyle at a gradual pace.

The loan amount for her entire group is 2,400,000 KHR, of which 1,400,000 KHR is her loan portion. As a leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her crop. She hopes that this purchase will boost her yield on time.
