A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Sokhea's Group's story

Sokhea is a 26-year-old mother of one daughter who is still in school; her entire family is living in a rural village in the Kror Kor District of Pursat Province, Cambodia. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice on three hectares of farmland for several years. The current business earns her about 10,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 5,000 KHR each day. The main challenge for her business is low crop yield resulting from the drought. Sokhea’s group consists of three members. She is the group leader, and a first time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisonFund. Now leading her group to apply for loan, Sokhea will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from the crop yield so as to set aside some money to have a decent motor vehicle for commuting and to keep her child in school.
