Sareth's Group's story

Sareth, 29 years old, is a villager in a rural village of Tbaung Khmum district in Cambodia’s Kampong Cham province. She is married and has two dependent sons, one of whom is a student.

Sareth and her husband have been working so tirelessly as rice farmers for eight years, generating income for the family of approximately 20,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) daily and saving about 8,000 KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living.

Sareth is a third-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loans have provided a huge positive impact on her as well as her family. She is so satisfied with those loans because she is able to improve her family’s lifestyle and send her children to school, which is a great achievement for her.

Sareth now is in need of money to pay for the cost of labor and to cover her household expenses. Therefore, she is leading a group of three female members to take out a loan with VisionFund in the amount of 3,400,000 KHR in total. This hardworking mother (Sareth) hopes to generate more income to the family and be able to sufficiently support her children’s schooling.
