A loan of $550 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland.

Sinoun's Group's story

Sinoun is 35 years old and married. She lives with her family in a rural area located in the Sangke district of Battambang province. She has four dependent children to take care of, three of whom are in school while another one is too young for school. Rice farming is the only primary source of her family’s income to make a living and she has been in this business for 10 years. With the current business, she can earn approximately 27,000 KHR per day and save about 10,000 KHR each day for the future needs.

This is the first microloan for Sinoun with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Sinoun will use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to increase her current business so as to earn a larger income to make a better living and keep her children in school.
