A loan of $750 helped a member to pay a plowing fee and to buy insecticide for her rice field.


Soth's Group's story

Age 23, Soth is a rice farmer who needs to support her one little son. Together with her family, she is residing in Moung Russey district's Kampong Cham province. Her one-hectare area of rice cropping earns her about 15,000 KHR per day. She has been in this business for five years, but she has not received high yields due to the lack of water supply.

Soth, a first-time borrower client, is forming a group of three female members. The other two fellow group members are second time borrowers with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. All of them are taking a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the group leader, Soth will use her portion to pay a plowing fee and to buy insecticide for her rice field. She expects to maximize her income from her current business so as to sustain better living conditions.
