A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland.


Sayoeng's story

Sayoeng is aged 45 years and married with four children, three of whom are dependent on her and help the family’s business. She lives in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has been growing rice on 3 hectares of farmland and corn on 2 hectares of farmland as the main source of the family’s income. She has been in this business for 12 years to support the family. She is able to earn about 30,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 20,000 KHR each day after offsetting expenses for future needs. Lack of water supply for supporting the rice paddy is the main challenge.

This is the second microloan for Sayoeng with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She successfully paid back the past loan which has supported her family's living conditions. Now she is requesting a loan with VisionFund of 4,000,000 KHR. With this loan, she is going to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income from the rice paddy so as to improve her living conditions.
