Sophea's story

Living in Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Sophea is 28 years old and a married mother of a dependent child who is in school. She has been growing cassava on a hectare area of farmland to earn the main source of income for eight years. In her spare time, she works on her co-villager's farm for a fee to earn additional income. As the cassava was unhealthy, it produced lower outputs with 20,800KHR of daily income. This is the fourth cycle that she applies for a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). For the past loan, which she repaid back successfully, enabled her to improve living standard and provide her family with proper clothes. By the way, the loan of 4,000,000KHR will be used to buy organic fertilizers to increase the crop products. She hopes that her cassava farming business can produce more yields and earn more income to her to update the standard of living and buy additional plot of farmland.
