A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy fertilizer for the farm and piglets for raising.


Sokha's Group's story

Aged 43, Sokha is married with five dependent children (one daughter and four sons). Two of them are paid taxi driver while the other three work at the family’s business. She is a rural farmer in a village located in the Prey Chhor district of Cambodia. She has been farming rice as the only source of income, for twenty years.

Sokha’s group consists of four female members and her group has been with Kiva’s field parter, VisionFund, for one year. Since 2010, she has used the loan to make a better living and be able to set aside some money. She currently earns 4 U.S. dollars per day. Sokha and other three members are each applying for another loan of US$300 in KHR equivalent. As the leader, she is going to use this entire loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy piglets as another source of income. With this loan, she hopes to increase her business and standard of living.

In this group: Sokha, Savang, Teang, Oun
