Savong has been with VisionFund, a partner of Kiva, for one cycle and has paid back his entire loan with success. Now, he feels empowered that he can attain better living conditions for his family. Hence, he is seeking a new loan in amount of 500 US dollars in order to buy more gasoline for resale and additional items for supporting his soup-selling business such as a big casserole, cooker, firewood, etc. He hopes that he will attract more customers so as he can improve his income.
