She and her husband are farmers who grow cassava. Having been in this business for ten years, together they can earn about KHR 50,000 per day.
Sokphan is in her third loan cycle with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia, and she completely paid back the loans, which have helped her improve her family’s living conditions. Now, she is leading her group to ask for a loan.
As the leader, Sokphan is going to use this loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland; she will also use a portion of it for labor costs. She hopes to grow her business and make more crops, to make a better living.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.
Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
