A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland, and pig feed for her pig business.


Seak's Group's story

Seak is 36 years old and married. She lives with her family in a rural area located in the Preahnet Preach district of Banteay Meanchey Province. She has two dependent children to take care of. Rice farming is the primary source of her family’s income and she has been in this business for six years. To add up more income, her husband also raises pigs. With the current business, Seak can earn approximately 30,000KHR per day and save about 20,000KHR each day for their future needs. Low crop yields is the main challenge.

This is the first micro-loan for Seak’s group of two with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Seak will use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy pig feed for her pig business. She hopes to increase her current businesses so as to earn a larger income to make a better living.
