Saron's story

Saron lives in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. He is 26 years old and married. To make a living, he has been involving in motorbike repair while his wife supplements the family's income by farming rice and raising pigs. Having been in this business for one year, he is able to earn about 12,000 Riels (KHR) per day and manage to save about 6,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. Insufficient working capital is the main challenge for his business.

This is the first microloan for Saron with Kiva's partner VisionFund. He is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. With this loan, he is going to buy spare parts for supporting his repair business and also buy a motor for resale. He hopes this loan will enable him to increase the income from the current business so as to improve his living conditions.
