A loan of $525 helped a member to buy feeds for her pigs.

Soeun's Group's story

Living in a rural village located in the Sangke district, Soeun is a 59-year-old widow and has seven children, only one of whom is dependent on her. Pig raising is a primary source of her income to make a living. She raises six pigs and she has been in this business for several years. The main challenge for her business is the illness of the pig.

Soeun has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two loan cycles while her group member has been with VisionFund for just one cycle. She completely paid back the loans, which have helped her make a better living. Now, she is able to earn around 11,000 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for another loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy feeds for her pigs. She hopes this loan will enable her to feed her pigs to be fat and healthy and also hopes to make a better living.
