A loan of $500 helped a member to buy two pigs for raising.


Savorn's Group's story

Savorn, a young 23-year-old mother of three schoolchildren, is a rural villager from Kralanh district of Siem Reap province. Her main source of income is from one hectare of rice crops. She has been farming for several years and is able to earn up to 12,300 KHR. This is the second loan for Savorn with Kiva's partner VisionFund. Her past loan, which she has paid back entirely, has enabled her to better support her household and her business. Now, in a group of two, she is the leader. She and her fellow group member are both in their second loan cycles and are requesting the same amount: 1,000,000 KHR each. Savorn is going to use her portion to buy two pigs for extra income. She hopes to fatten her pigs to a healthy condition, so she can earn a high profit and keep her children in school.
