A loan of $525 helped to buy pesticides, fertilizers and seeds for her farmland.


Sarat's story

Living in a rural village of Siem Reap province’s Srey Snom district, Sarat is a 21-year-old married woman. She and her husband have earned a living through farming rice. The current business earns her about 20,000 KHR per day, but she can manage to save about 13,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Sarat is a first-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy pesticides, fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. With this loan, she hopes to increase her current business and also hopes to make more income to improve her family’s living standard.
