A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland.

San's Group's story

Living in a thatched roof house in a rural village of the Sangke district of Battambang province, San is aged 60 years old and widowed. She has nine children. She earns a living through farming rice, raising cows and working for others for a fee. Having been in these businesses for 10 years, San is able to earn approximately 32,000 KHR per day to support her family.

This is the second loan for San with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loan which has enabled her to relieve her family’s financial burden. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. San wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland, and she will use a portion of it on labor costs. She hopes to make a better crop yield and sell it for a good price so as to improve her lifestyle.
