A loan of $425 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay for laborers to work her land.


Sat's Group's story

Sat, 47, lives in Dambae, a rural area in Kampong Cham District, Cambodia. She is married and has four children.


For the past twenty years Sat has farmed rice in a one-hectare paddy and grown cassava on a 2.5-hectare field. She is able to earn about 30,000 KHR a day and manages to save around 10,000 KHR a day.


Sat previously received a loan through Kiva’s partner VisionFund, which helped her to ease her family’s life and improve her farm. Sat is now the leader of a group of two (she and Boeurn, shown here) applying for a loan with VisionFund. She plans to use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and pay for laborers to work her land.


Sat hopes to increase her crops’ yield so as to make more money and fulfill her dream of building a decent house for her family.
