A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Sarou's Group's story

A married mother of three dependent children, Sarou is now 38 years old and married. Currently all of her children are in school. Sarou has been growing maize in her village (where crop farming is common) as her primary source of income for ten years.
Sarou received a loan from Kiva partner VisionFund seven years ago. The loan helped her afford sufficient food and enabled her to send her children to school regularly. She completely paid back the loan from VisionFund. She now leads a group of five members who are applying for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader of the group, she will use her loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland. Sarou hopes this loan will enable her to grow healthy maize and improve her income in order to keep her children in school.

In this group: Sarou, Noum, Roeut, Saroun, Chhorvorn
