Savan, 33, is married and lives with her husband and five children in the village of Battambang province. Two of her children are still in school while another one is too young for school and they are dependent on her.

She and her husband are rice farmers. She has been in the rice farming business for 16 years. The main challenge for her family’s business is the lack of capital to buy fertilizer to better grow her crops.

Savan is a first-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is requesting a loan in order to buy fertilizers and insecticide for her farmland. With this loan, she hopes to increase her crop yields to earn more income and improve her family’s living conditions.
