Sok is 44 years old and a mother who has been blessed with four children. She permanently lives in Prey Chor district and grows rice there for generating income. Besides this, she goes through the village to collect and buy recycled material, whereas her husband shares his responsibility by working as a construction worker from place to place around the Kompong Cham province.
Sok would like to seek a loan from HKL, one of Kiva's partners, to rent a plantation for growing potato crops, from which she’ll be able to improve her living conditions.
