A loan of $725 helped a member to buy fertilizer for farming and a machine for her small boat for fishing.

Sopheap's Group's story

As a 37-year-old mother of six kids living in Ek Phnom district, Sopheap grows rice and beans as the main source of income. Her husband is not only a helper with the family's businesses, but also a fisherman in order to supplement the household's income. They have been with these businesses for 25 years. However, the lack of a water supply remains the main challenge for her current businesses. This is the fifth loan for Sopheap with KIVA's partner, VisionFund. The past four loans have made her a better living and she can earn about 62,000 KHR per day.In a confident manner. She formed a group loan with three other members to apply for a new loan with VisionFund. One member is a third loan client while the other two are new clients. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and a machine for her small boat for fishing. She hopes to grow healthy rice so that she can earn more income to keep improving her family’s lifestyle.
