A loan of $675 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay for farm labor.

Saran's Group's story

Saran is 26 years old and married. She has two dependent children, one daughter and one son, both of whom are too young for school. To support the family, she has been farming rice and raising pigs for several years, and also works for others for a fee. She can earn about 15,000 Riel (KHR) per day and save about 5,000 Riel (KHR) each day for future needs. Lacking water for supporting her rice field is the main challenge for her business.

Saran's group, for which she is the leader, consists of four women who live in the same village of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She and her group members are first-time borrowers with Kiva's partner, VisionFund.

Saran will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and pay for labor costs in transplanting rice seedlings. She hopes to grow her rice fruitfully so as to sell it for a good price to improve her living conditions.
