Saveth's Group's story

Saveth is 42 years old and the married mother of five children. Her family lives in Pursat Province. To overcome the family’s hardship, she grows rice and raises pigs as the main source of income. This 20 years of experience in this business generates about 18,700 KHR per day to support her standard of living. She is the group leader in the group of three. Saveth is a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), while one of her co-borrowers is a six cycle client and another one is a third cycle client. Now, she is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 KHR. Saveth, whose loan portion is 200,000 KHR, will use her loan to buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more rice. She hopes that growing more rice in her business will allow her to improve her lifestyle.
