Savet's story

Savet is married and a mother of three children who are students in the local public school. Her entire family is residing in Dambae district, Cambodia.

To sustain her family, she has been growing cassava on a one-hectare area and planting rice on another one-hectare of farmland. As her husband's health condition is not so good, her business depends on her. For the nine years that she has engaged in this business, she has earned about 25,000 KHR per day.

She is a second-time borrower with Kiva's partner,VisionFund. From her past loan, which she has paid back with success, she can manage her cash-crop progressively especially in paying for the labor cost. Now, she is seeking a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. She is going to use this loan to pay for weeding fees and labor fees to transplant her rice seedlings. She hopes that this loan will return her good output, so she can keep supporting her children in school and maintaining her living condition.
