Savann's Group's story

Savann, age 55 and a widow living in Kampong Cham Province, is a farmer who grows rice on a hectare as her primary source of income. She sells grocery items in the area for supplementary income. For the 37 years that she has been involved in this business, she is able to earn up to 30,000 riels (KHR) per day. Savann has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past three cycles. Her living conditions have improved gradually with her past loans, which she has repaid with success. Now, she is in a group of four members applying for a new loan. The total amount of the group loan is 5,400,000 KHR. Savann is going to use her loan portion of 1,400,000 KHR to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland. She hopes to grow her paddy rice on time and make a good profit.
