A loan of $625 helped to harvest rice and buy a boat machine for her husband’s fish-catching business.


Sareoun's story

Sareoun, 45 years old, is a citizen living in a rural village of Battambang Province’s Moung Russey District in Cambodia. She is married and a mother of four children, all of whom are school-aged and still under her responsibility.

To earn income for the family, Sareoun works as a rice farmer, while her husband works as a fisherman. Together, they are able to earn approximately 35,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 25,000 KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living.

Sareoun has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for six loan cycles already, with which she succeeded in increasing the family’s income and sending her children to school. This has made her so satisfied.

Sareoun is now seeking a KHR 2,500,000 loan to harvest rice and buy a boat machine for her husband’s fish-catching business.

Sareoun hopes to be able to earn even more income generated by her business and her husband’s, so that she can use the anticipated income to further educate her beloved children.
