A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seed for her farmland.


Saren's Group's story

Saren, 36 years old, is a rural villager from the Sangke district. She earns a living by growing cassava as her main source of income. She has been in this business for 12 years. For additional income, her husband works for others for a fee. She has five children to take care of.
Saren’s group consists of two members who are both female. Saren is on her sixth loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She has completely paid back the previous loans which have helped her better support her family. Now leading her group to apply for a new loan, Saren will use her portion to buy fertilizer and seed for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yields and sell her harvest for a good price to make a better living.
