A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy rice seed for replanting her crops.


Savin's Group's story

Savin, aged 59 and a villager from the Bovel district of Battambang province, is a farmer who grows rice as the main source of income and works for others for a fee as extra work to make more income.

She has been involved in her current business for 15 years, and it has returned her about 40,000 KHR per day. This is the fourth loan for Savin with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has paid back her past loan with success, and now her living condition is getting better than before. Now, in a group of three, she is a leader.

She will spend her entire loan portion to pay for a plowing fee and to buy rice seed for replanting her crops. She highly hopes that she can make more income so that she can keep improving her lifestyle.
