Saveth is a resident residing in a rural area of Sangke district located in Battambang province, Cambodia. She is 31 years of age and married with three dependent sons, all of whom are currently in school. To offer a decent life for her family, Saveth has a business raising pigs. Her husband works for others as a paid worker in order to add more income to the family. Through the current businesses, this couple is able to earn around 33,000KHR per day and save approximately 13,000KHR after offsetting the daily expenses. This is Saveth’s third time requesting loan via VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The previous loans have helped Saveth to strengthen her pig-raising business, which has enabled her to earn more income for the family. Now she is leading a loan group of three female members to apply for a loan in the amount of 3,800,000KHR in total. The group representative, Saveth, will use her requested loan portion, which is 1,400,000KHR, to purchase seven heads of pig to raise. Saveth’s biggest hope in the future is to be able to support her dependent sons’ education so that they can have bright future and become potential youths in society.
