A loan of $275 helped a member to buy rice seeds for her farmland.

Sarom's Group's story

Sarom is 42 years old, married, and has five children. Currently, three children still rely on her as two of them are still in school while the remaining one is too young for schooling. Sarom earns a living through rice farming which she has been with for 15 years. From the current business, she is able to earn about 15,500 KHR per day and manages to save 5,000 KHR after deducting daily expenses.

This is the first time for Sarom borrowing from VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Now she and her group member are seeking the same loan amount of 500,000 KHR each. Sarom is the leader and she will spend her loan portion to buy rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to make more income so that she can better her lifestyle.
