Sem's story

Originally from Sa Ang district of Kandal provice, Sem is 54 years old and a father of four children; some of them are now still in school. His main source of income for his family is from his bean planting business. The main challenge for his business is the low yield due to pests. To overcome this challenge, he is applying for a new loan. His prior loan from Vision Fund (Kiva's partner) has enabled him to improve his lifestyle and make it better than before. Now he is seeking a loan of 2,800,000 KHR in order to fix his water pump and buy bean seeds, fertilizer, and insecticide for his farmland. He hopes that he can gain a good yield from his crop so he can make more income to keep his children in school until college.
