Ouk Nget - Purchase cows
I have raised my own livestock of cattle in order to increase my family income. Now, my husband and I want to buy one more cow but we don't have enough capital to purchase it. Therefore, I decide to ask for a loan from SAMIC. Beside of purchasing a cow, I have planned to take the rest of this money to open a small business selling some groceries at home in order to increase my income and to be able to send my children to school. I hope my children will have a good future.

Rates and transparency
- This loan is at 0% and does not pay any interest to the lender.
- The MFI will reimburse the lender in case of default of the entrepreneur but there is no guarantee or insurance given by the MFI.
- 100% of the money collected is sent to the MFI, even if the project is not fully funded on the site.
- The MFI then makes a loan to the micro-entrepreneur and charges an interest rate in order to cover its operational and financial costs.
- The platform earns a commission from the MFI for the service it provides, which helps to fund its running costs.
- More effective than a simple donation, micro-credit promotes long-term sustainable economic development rather than short term help.
