A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice field.

Saroun's Group's story

Saroun, aged 44 and a mother of three children, is a farmer from Siem Reap province, Kror Lanh. She grows rice on her three hectares of farmland and her husband catches fish to sell for this household's sake. Having been with this business for 10 years, she can earn about 25,000 KHR per day. This is her fourth-cycle loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) and first-cycle loan for her co-member; there are two female members in her group.

After the successful loan that she has paid back, she feels empowered to maintain her living conditions better than before. Now, she is seeking 1,400,000 KHR while her fellow group member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. Saroun is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice field. She hopes this purchase will increase her production and return a high profit.
