A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her agricultural business.

Soeurt's Group's story

Soeurt, a local farmer from Battambang province of Cambodia, is 43 years old and married. She has five children, but currently only two children depend on her. She tackles her family hardship by selling food and farming rice, while her husband helps supplement her income by working as a village chief. Soeurt has been involved in this current business for 20 years, and she has completed seven successful previous loans with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid her past loans, and used them to cover the basic needs for her family.

For this loan, Soeurt formed a group of two. As the group leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her crops. She hopes that she can gain a good yield from her agricultural business with a good income in return.

In this group: Soeurt, Sothy
