Sirout's Story

Sirout is a rice farmer and also raises pigs. Her husband works as a primary teacher in their village. Their combined income is not sufficient to provide for the family, so Sirout works as a laborer in her free time. Her goal is to expand her livestock business and rice farm so that she can improve living conditions for her family.

With a loan from World Vision, Sirout plans to purchase more piglets, and hire labor to help her harvest the rice on time. With the additional income she will earn from these improvements, she will reinvest in her businesses by purchasing more piglets and feed, and expanding the size of her rice field. As her businesses grow and prosper, Sirout will be able to make a better life for her three children.

Industry Info

The Agriculture business sector covers all farming and livestock activities. Some entrepreneurs request loans to help in securing supplies and equipment. Others want to buy more animals to breed or purchase feed and medicines. The majority of our loan clients live in rural communities where agriculture is already understood as a business model. It is for this reason that approximately 50% of our loans are in the agricultural sector.
