A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland.

Saroeub's Group's story

A widowed mother of seven kids—two of whom are still in school, Saroeub is 53 years old and she grows rice and beans on two hectares as the main sources of her income. She can earn about 44,200 KHR per day and manages to save 19,900 KHR each day after the family’s expenses have been deducted.

This is the sixth microloan for Saroeub with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has completely paid back the loans and they have helped her family to have decent food. Now she is leading two of her group members to ask for a loan in amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland. She hopes to gain more yield from her crops so as to extend her farming business.
