A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Saron's story

Saron lives in a rural area of the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She is a 35-year-old married mother of four dependent children, three daughters and one son, all of whom are still in school. To make a living, she and her husband have been in rice farming on two hectares of farmland, supplementing the income by making palm juice. They have been in this business for ten years and can earn about 87,000KHR per day to support the family. Saron is the fourth cycled client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The past loans have helped her improve livelihood and support her children’s education. Now she is applying for a loan with VisionFund of KHR4,000,000. With this loan, she is going to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy bamboos for making a ladder to climb palm trees. Saron hopes this loan will enable her to increase more income from the current business so as to improve her standard of living.
