A loan of $1,200 helped to buy fertilizer for farmland.

Sary's story

Residing in a rural area located in the the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Sary is 55 years old. He is married and has five children, a few of whom are dependent on him and still in school while the others have their own employment.

To support the family, Sary is a teacher in a local area while his wife plants bitter gourds and beans for sale to gain more income. Having been in this business for several years, they can earn about US $5 per day and manage to save about US $3 each day for the future.

Sary has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for one cycle. He completely paid back the first loan, which has helped him relieve his family’s burden and save some money for supporting his children’s education.

Now he is applying for a loan with VisionFund of US $1,200. With this loan, he is going to buy fertilizer for his farmland and use a portion of it to support his children’s education. He hopes to earn more income from the current business so as to make a better living and keep his children in school until they finish their education.
