A loan of $700 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizer and to pay plowing fees.


Saroeurt's Group's story

Saroeurt, 49, is a rural villager from Battambang province and a mother of six children. Currently, two of her children are under her responsibility. To make a living, she does paddy rice cropping as the main source of income on three hectares of farmland. This current business has earned her 25,000 KHR per day. Saroeurt has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for her past six loans and she has fully repaid them. The loans have positively impacted her family in a gradual way as she can now cover the basic needs of her family and buy some household appliances. Now, she is a group leader of two to get a new loan. She and her group member are requesting a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees. She strongly hopes that her business will improve so that she will be able to save some money for her family.
