A loan of $475 helped a member to buy rice seed for her farmland.


Savoun's Group's story

Savoun, originally from Battambang Province, is 31 years old and strives to make a living through a single business, rice farming, which she has been with for 10 years. Currently, she has one son who still needs her support as he is still in school. Savoun, a fifth time borrower, joined this group consisting of two female members to apply for a new loan; the other borrower is new to VisionFund (Kiva’s partner).

Savoun has supported her living in a good manner from the past loans which she has completely paid back. Now, she is seeking 1,200,000 KHR while her co-borrower is applying for half of her requesting loan amount, 600,000 KHR only. Savoun, the leader, will use her loan portion to buy rice seed for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice seasonably so she can gain triple yield with high profit for her child’s sake.
