A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Sarat's Group's story

Sarat is a 34-year-old mother of three sons living in Kandal province's Kandal Stoeng, Cambodia. All of her children are dependent on her and still in school. Sarat has been farming for almost 15 years as a main source of income. To add more income, she also tailors clothes. The current business earns her about 5 USD per day.

Sarat is a second-cycle client with Kiva's partner VisionFund. The first loan helped her to better support her family’s living condition and pursue her children’s education. Now she leads a group of four members to seek a new loan; all of them are seeking the same amount, 500,000 KHR each. For Sarat, the loan portion will be used to buy fertilizers to use in her rice field and she hopes that this loan will provide her with higher crop yields so that she can better support her children’s education.
