A loan of $950 helped a member to buy more pigs for raising.


Sokhon's Group's story

Sokhon, aged 33 years old and the mother of one daughter, is a rural villager from the Moung Russey district of Battambang district, Cambodia. To earn a daily living, she has been raising pigs for more than four years. This is the main source of income, and her husband supplements the family's income as a fisherman. The current business earns her about 22,000 KHR. For the four loan cycles that she has been with Kiva partner VisionFund, she has paid back all the loans with success, maintaining a better standard of living for her family. Now, she has formed a group of three female members to seek a new loan and she is the group leader. This is the fifth loan cycle for her and one of her fellow group members, while it is the first loan cycle for the remaining member. For her, the loan portion will be used to buy more pigs for raising. She hopes to raise her pig healthfully so as to sell it for a high price to earn more income to support her family.
