Sokhoeun's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fertilizer for her rice fields.

Sokhoeun's Group's story

Sokhoeun, forty, is single and a rural villager in Kampong Cham province. She farms rice to sell and has worked in construction for twenty-two years. She is also the head of a two-member group applying for this loan.

Recently, Sokhoeun’s crop was wiped out by insects, which caused her to face financial difficulties. She is applying for a 2,800,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner VisionFund Cambodia to be divided between her and her group partner. This will be the first loan they have taken out. She plans to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice fields.

Sokhoeun hopes her fields will flourish, provide a larger income for her and so enable her to improve her living conditions.
