A loan of $1,100 helped to buy rice seeds and fertilizer and to plow her field.


Sây's story

Farming is the most important part of 58-year-old Mrs. Sây’s daily work. She has been farming since 2003.

She and her husband have five children. Three of her children have already married and live separate houses. The other two are working in a sewing factory in Phnom Penh city where they earn a fixed salary each month.

When planting season arrives, Mrs. Sây wants to buy rice seeds and fertilizer and to plow her field. Because of lack of money, she would like to request some funding from Kiva to buy seeds and fertilizer and to plow her field. Mrs. Sây is pictured in the photo with her husband.
