A loan of $1,000 helped to buy four sacks of fertilizer and pesticides.


Savun's story

Originally from the Mongkul Borey district of Bateay Mean Chey province, Savun is a local farmer and her husband is a blacksmith. They are blessed with three children who currently are studying at the public school in the community. Engaging in this business for eight years, Savun is able to earn about 8 US dollars per day and saves about 5 US dollars per day. However, sometimes this income is quite lower than her expectations due to pests and weeds.

This is her second loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She paid back her past loan completely, which supported her crops on time and kept all of her children in school. For this new cycle, she is seeking 1000 US dollars. She is going to use her loan to buy four sacks of fertilizer and pesticides. Moreover, she will use some portion of it to buy materials to support her husband's business. She hopes to minimize her loss and get back high margins to better her lifestyle.
