Savat's Group's story

Savat is 50 years old and a father of four children. He lives in Thmor Koul district, of Battambang province. His main sources of income are a pig-raising business and a rice-selling business. He has been involved in the current business for 20 years.

Savat has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for eight loan cycles, including this one. He has fully repaid his past seven loans, and he used them with success, to upgrade his living conditions. Now, he leads a group of three people to get a new loan. He and one of his co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each, while the remaining member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, Savat will spend his loan portion to buy pig feed, with which to fatten his pigs. He hopes to raise his pigs healthily, so he will get a good price for them when he sells.
