A loan of $1,025 helped to buy one hectare of farmland to grow sesame.


Sarem's story

Aged 46 and living in Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Sarem is a farmer who is responsible for three of her six children as they are still students in the local public school. She and her husband manage four hectares of rainy season rice cultivation and two hectares of sesame planting. The current business, which she has been with for 10 years, earns her about 40,000 KHR per day.

Sarem has never been with Kiva Field Partner, VisionFund, before. Now, she applies for her first loan in order to buy one hectare of farmland. She hopes that this purchase will help her to enlarge her sesame planting scale and generate good income for her children’s sake and to sustain her living.
