A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Saoret's Group's story

Saoret lives in a rural area of the MongKul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province, Cambodia. She is married with five children, one daughter of whom is still dependent on her for support. Rice farming on two hectares of farmland is the only main source of family’s income for Saoret. She has been in this business for twenty years and is able to earn about KHR 23,000 per day. Low crop yield is still the main challenge for her business.

Saoret’s group consists of three members who live in the same village; they have been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two cycles. Saoret successfully paid back the past loans and is now leading the group to request a loan. She is going to use her portion of KHR 1,000,000 to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income so as to have enough capital to expand her business and to have a proper house.

In this group: Saoret, Kimtouch, Sokhert
