Savath's Group's story

Savath is a resident from Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. She is 44 years old and a married mother of three children. Two of them rely on her as they are in school.

To strive for a living, she sells dessert as her main source of income and catches fish to sell to supplement her income. She has been involved in her business for 15 years. She is a former borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for seven previous loan cycles, which she has repaid back completely. This had a positive impact on her family, as well as provided timely support toward her business.

Now, she leads a group of two to get a new loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to renovate her house and to buy ingredients for making dessert to sell. She hopes her family’s business will improve so she can increase her income to keep supporting her family.
